“The main benefits are the progression routes for support staff to achieve registration in their preferred profession, which helps us to recruit and retain members of our allied health professions staff.
The Advanced Clinical Practitioner role also provides career progression but supports our patient safety agenda and high standards of patient care. It also supports with the medical workforce challenges. It offers master’s level qualifications for staff and again they can earn while they learn and develop.
The distance staff have to travel is a challenge, as this can be difficult while trying to work as well. We’re currently using UWE Bristol as it is our local University and offers the apprenticeships that we need.
Apprenticeships will offer opportunities to staff that they would not otherwise have been able to undertake, which will enable them to reach their full potential. This will result in being a great place to work and maintain high standards of care for our patients.”
