Partnership working with local Further Education Colleges to design and deliver pre-apprenticeship programmes can support widening participation and skills development in your local community, whilst creating a talent pipeline into NHS jobs and careers.
A great example of a College and NHS pre-apprenticeship can be seen at North Cumbria Integrated Care NHS Foundation Trust. The Trust worked with their local college to design a new programme which has helped students gain employment as bank healthcare assistants within the Trust.
