#NHS100Challenge beats its target for NHS Apprentices

Posted on 13th June 2019

With an ambitious target to enrol 100 apprentices in 100 days, Lincolnshire’s #NHS100Challenge has succeeded in bringing a total of 117 apprentices onto programme.

The innovative campaign launched by the Lincolnshire Talent Academy during National Apprenticeship Week in March, has delivered a mixture of social media promotion, roadshows, departmental visits and publications to engage and inform current staff about the apprenticeship opportunities across the three NHS trusts.

Claire Flavell, Strategic Lead for the NHS Lincolnshire Talent Academy said: “The campaign has helped to highlight the variety of clinical and non-clinical apprenticeships available to staff across the health and care system.”

“We’ve been successful in attracting staff of all ages from a diverse range of occupations, highlighting the opportunities that are available for them to work, train and develop within the County.”

Brittany Hodgson, TACC Support Manager at Pilgrim Hospital is one of the new apprentices who has been recently commenced her Chartered Manager Degree Apprenticeship as a result of the challenge.

“I was encouraged to start an apprenticeship by my manager, who suggested it would aid my career progression” she told the Talent Academy.

“As I am currently a support manager, it will enable me to progress up the managerial ladder.”
