Integrated health and social care apprenticeship

SAVE ITEM

07 / 03 / 2017

Working with social care partners, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust developed an integrated apprenticeship designed to provide a broad understanding of the different roles and responsibilities that exist in both health and social care.

Piloted over a year, the aim of the programme was to support those wishing to pursue a career across a range of care organisations. Starting with a two week clinical induction, the apprentices went on to undertake two six month placements, offered in a community care setting and on a hospital ward.

By experiencing the different systems and cultures, the apprenticeship enabled the apprentices to gain both knowledge and transferable skills while keeping a person-centred approach to care at its heart.
