The Widening Participation Team was established 18 years ago, a model of in house training delivery. The programme consists of the Apprenticeship standards and QCF, alongside this there are opportunities to up-skill maths and English, as part of the programme.

There is 1 day a week study with 30 hours working in a Healthcare or Business administration setting. Study days are undertaken within the Hospital Manor and Learning conference centre.

The Apprenticeship programmes that we currently run are:

  • Customer service Level 2
  • Business Administration level 2 and 3
  • Healthcare Support Level 2
  • Senior Healthcare Support Level 3

The Widening Participation Team also offer a Work Experience programme, and works closely with the Princes Trust.

We currently have 116 Apprentices on programme across a broad range of specialities/divisions throughout the trust.

The Apprenticeship Programme recruits from a diverse range of applicants including school leavers, people from pre-employment programmes such as the Princes Trust, there is no age restriction and we welcome all applicants.
