Flexible Apprenticeships in Health and Social Care – Manual published

26 May, 2021

A new manual, co-authored by employers and providers within the sector and Government, has today been published to set out how flexibilities in apprenticeships can be used and delivered in Health and Social Care to meet the needs of employers and apprentices.

The ‘Flexible Apprenticeships in Health and Social Care’ manual, published today, sets out:

  • how the delivery of apprenticeship training can be flexed to meet employer needs; and
  • how the length of an apprenticeship can be reduced where an individual has existing relevant knowledge or skills.

Some employers are already making use of apprenticeship flexibilities and are seeing the benefits of this, in workforce satisfaction, productivity, and improved value for money. This includes employers and providers who co-authored the manual alongside Government.

Employer incentives payments, in place until September 2021, mean there is £3000 available for every apprentice hired, visit the GOV website for more information.
