The guide offers advice, hints and tips, as well as key information around the introduction of the apprenticeship levy and how to make the most of the changes which will come into effect from April 2017.
Apprenticeships are becoming increasingly important within healthcare workforce planning. Many organisations are now using apprenticeships as a way of developing both new and current staff working at all levels, from porters to managers. When used creatively, and as part of a holistic workforce strategy, apprenticeships can help to address some of the challenges that employers face today and in the future.
This guide will help those working within the NHS with a responsibility for delivering apprenticeships. It provides key information on:
- understanding the policy changes
- getting board commitment
- developing an apprenticeship strategy
- purchasing, selecting and delivering training
- evaluating your apprenticeship programmes.
