Since May 2017 we’ve recruited more than 400 staff through apprenticeships offered throughout the service.
We’re committed to the development of all of our staff, along with providing the best education to our apprentices so that they can have long and successful careers within the service.
Following our latest Ofsted inspection we’re proud to have received an overall effectiveness rating of good, which reflects the hard work and dedication we give to those who choose to develop and learn with us.
The development of behaviour and attitudes and the personal development of apprentices were both rated as Outstanding in the Trust with quality of education, leadership and management and overall apprenticeship programmes were rated as good.
The latest inspection report also stated that apprentices want to be the best they can be to provide the best possible care for their patients and service users. One of the comments made by an apprentice involved in the inspection said of their role, which was quoted within the report, “When you put on your uniform, it changes you, you feel a sense of pride.”
