Apprenticeships take centre stage for Lincolnshire NHS training and development
Posted on 29th September 2017
In response to the introduction of the apprenticeship levy and public sector targets in April 2017, Lincolnshire Talent Academy NHS stakeholders have launched a comprehensive staff training and development programme.
The programme has been designed to utilise the annual apprenticeship levy – a government tax placed upon all large organisations, equating to 0.5% of their annual pay-bill.
For United Lincolnshire Hospitals and Lincolnshire Partnership Foundation Trust, this equates to £1.3m per annum.
Introduction to Apprenticeships
Since government reforms were first introduced in 2013, apprenticeships have undergone a significant period of change, moving from historical NVQ qualifications and frameworks, across to employer designed programmes referred to as “Standards” incorporating a range of qualifications up to degree level.
No longer for lower level attainment, apprenticeships provide theoretical and practical on-the-job training and development around the skills, knowledge and behaviours for over 1,500 job roles.
Apprenticeship training is available to all individuals of any age over 16, and can be used to support new recruits or existing staff already in post.
