Leading the way in Healthcare Apprenticeships (England)

We’re the leading authority on Healthcare Apprenticeships, working with Health Education England we manage and curate the national Standards for Healthcare Apprenticeships, with support for employers delivered on HASO (Healthcare Apprenticeship Standards Online). Health Education England sponsors the development of Trailblazer Apprenticeships in the Health Sector as part of the Talent for Care ‘Get in, Get on, Go Further’ themes and strategic aims.

Our team at Skills for Health facilitates the development of apprenticeship standards for use in the health sector in England. Health sector managers can use the HASO website to find a wide range of apprenticeships to train staff in clinical and non-clinical roles.

Preparing for the delivery of Apprenticeships and Ofsted

With a wide range of government apprenticeship reforms having taken place in England such as the introduction of the apprenticeships levy – it’s more important than ever for your organisation to be prepared and have an effective plan in place. How apprenticeships could benefit your organisation:

  • Help grow your own workforce and resolve long-term recruitment challenges

  • Retain, retrain and upskill existing staff and ensure talent is kept in the sector

  • Boost morale by offering professional development opportunities for your staff

  • Improve productivity and generate new creative ideas from a growing team

  • Utilise the Apprenticeship Levy funding and meet Government Apprenticeship targets

Map your Apprenticeship journey to help grow your own

We’ll work with you at whatever stage of the Apprenticeship journey you are at, whether you need to develop a new programme using national Healthcare Apprenticeship Standards, or are delivering in-house training and need to prepare for Ofsted inspection or support with End-Point Assessment for Apprenticeships in England.

As the government focuses renewed emphasis on apprenticeships, apprenticeship targets are likely to be a central part of your organisation’s workforce development and recruitment strategies. Are you ready to make the most of healthcare apprenticeships?
