Planning and Partnership Working

The NHS Long Term Workforce Plan commits to supporting ICSs (Integrated care systems) to develop local apprenticeship strategies that maximise benefits from changes to funding approaches and to focus on workforce shortfalls and the deployment of roles that enhance patient outcomes.

A system-level apprenticeship strategy, with system-level oversight and planning, would better support organisations to grow and recruit their own staff, and enable ICSs to collaborate on their approaches to using apprenticeships with education providers both nationally and locally.

Evaluate the benefits of apprenticeships in your organisation by regularly analysing the performance and outcomes of your apprentices, this will allow you to see the current and future benefits to your business.
