A set of principles to help employers in healthcare organisations deliver quality apprenticeships has been developed by National Skills Academy for Health and Health Education England (HEE).
Quality Principles for NHS Apprenticeships has been designed as a self-assessment and planning guide, which those leading on the development and delivery of apprenticeships can use to evaluate where they sit against each of the principles, and plan for any improvements.
The principles have been drawn from the experience of health organisations delivering good quality apprenticeships and are supported with short practice examples. The principles are specific to the delivery of healthcare apprenticeships and can also be considered alongside HEE’s Education Quality Framework to ensure high standard training is consistently delivered.
The guide and other resources are available at National Skills Academy for Health. Please note, following feedback from colleagues a second version of the Quality Principles will be published soon with minor amendments.
