Our apprenticeship programme will focus on both your academic and professional development over the course your 13-month apprenticeship.
You can expect monthly reviews with both your line manager and your assessor to check in with your progress to provide you with the support you need to aid your development. In between your monthly reviews you will be working closely with your mentor who will support you in your department on a day-to-day basis.
Our apprenticeship programme is also supported by our apprentice network which is held monthly. You’ll come together with your fellow apprentices across the Trust to discuss your experience and focus on your development as a group.
The technical bits
Our apprenticeship programme is subject to statutory terms and conditions including a progress pay structure over a 13-month period that is subject to a six and nine month review. Our apprentices must pass the first three months in order to continue with the following 10 months of the programme.
There are eligibility criteria for government-funded apprenticeship schemes that apply and therefore applicants must be aged 16 or above, have been resident in the UK/EU for the last three years, must not possess a Degree, Level 4 qualification or above, Full Level 2 or above Diploma in Business Administration or already be in any form of formal government-funded education.
Eligible applicants will be invited to a two-day assessment centre. Following the successful completion of the assessment process, candidates will then be required to undertake a 30-hour work-based assessment before candidates will are entered into our apprentice talent pool. Candidates in the talent pool will then be invited to apply for apprenticeship vacancies across the Trust as they become available. Entrance into the talent pool does not constitute employment but rather eligibility to apply for apprenticeship vacancies.
Apprenticeship contracts are subject to both academic and professional progress throughout the agreed apprenticeship framework.
