3 Apprenticeships main route into NHS/Health for local young people in Notts Robust programme of Apprenticeship recruitment of young people aged 16 – 24 across the LHC Over 100 young people recruited each year across a variety of frameworks (since 2009) LHC approach with shared T&C’s LHC Apprenticeship group – includes Educational providers, Apprentices and NHS/Health organisations Governance to WWD group (subgroup of LETC) Data collection and analysis – HEE/DH Use of social media/website/twitter Learner voice – NAF Committee

4 Apprenticeships cont’d Annual celebration event Access to DH funding/Apprenticeship grants 9 out 10 Apprentices have a positive outcome on completion of programme 8 out 10 Apprentices move into a permanent band 2/3 role (14K a year) on completion of programme All training fully evaluated and then adapted/commissioned to meet learner needs Regional recognition, award winning employer, case studies, promotional literature

5 Current terms and conditions of employment Salary - £115 per week Supernumerary status QCF Qual + ERR + Technical Certificate + Functional Skills Often educational component fully funded 12 – 18 month training contract (dependent on framework) Code of conduct Guidance/risk assessment for employment for 16-18 year olds

6 Integration - An Apprenticeship framework truly across Health and Social care Recruit and develop clinical Apprentices with skills and competencies to care for individuals in a range of Health and Social care settings Cross sector and Interprofessional learning, understanding and progression Individuals fit for purpose across all sectors and highly skilled on completion of training Apprentices able to work and think beyond organisational boundaries Shift the way care givers think about how care is provided in order to anticipate patient and carer needs

7 Timely? Why now? Associated policy drivers Francis Report Cavendish Review - Care Certificate Pre – degree work experience Higher Apprenticeship - Nursing Better care fund (formerly the integration transformation fund) HEE Mandate/Deliverables Increase number of Healthcare Apprenticeships Minimum training standards for HCA’s Progression of HCA’s into Professional training

8 The Pilot Cohort 1 - up to 10 Apprentices - September 2014 NUH ‘host employer’ 18 month contract Rotational programme following the patient pathway – GP/Community/Care Home/Acute Care 3-4 months in each setting Level 2 qualification - mapped to minimum training standards for HCA’s HCA Skills Academy providing a robust foundation to the programme, including 6 C’s, V&B’s etc Experienced HCA’s to ‘buddy’ Apprentices A second cohort is planned for mid-2015

9 Examples of improved patient/client outcomes Apprentices will get an understanding of the complete patient journey, including sector specific challenges and good practice Apprentices who have experience of caring for patients within home and community settings will be well placed to appreciate the importance of patient centred; personalised care and the importance of maintaining this through episodes of acute care stays The quality of transfer of care/discharge can often suffer when communication is ineffective between different health and social care sectors – Apprentices with increased knowledge will minimise this

10 Potential challenges to the Pilot Framework must meet the needs/competencies of all sectors Funding of the qualification/additional units Commitment of the candidates to move to next placement Modular approach may be required Coordination and support for candidates/placements Provider who can work/assess across all sectors Supply of suitable candidates Geography of placement circuit Clear understanding of roles and responsibilities of all parties Financial ‘buy in’ for salaries from all parties

11 Potential challenges to Apprenticeship recruitment Demand for the opportunity by candidates locally Travel limitations Potential chaotic lives of some candidates Pastoral support Clear commitment to the programme and a possible modular approach Financial considerations – particularly for the older candidates/DWP

12 Points for consideration locally Do you have a similar need? Opportunity to ‘grow’ your own workforce Opportunity for integration Use of an ATA Funding pots available through NAS grants/LEP Support and funding available from HEEM
