Dr Greg Wood Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust

Clare Aspden University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
In this webinar, we showcased some non-typical apprenticeship routes in the NHS and how they can promote the availability of supply and development opportunities.
We heard speakers talk about their apprenticeship programmes in the health service:
- East London NHS Foundation Trust, Essex Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust and Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust have been working in partnership to develop the Clinical Associate in Psychology (CAP) apprenticeships programme. The programme intends to build an apprenticeship model for a future, sustainable and diverse psychology workforce that is representative of the communities it serves. The CAP apprenticeships programme was the winner of the HSJ Award for Workforce Initiative of the Year 2022.
- University Hospital Southampton (UHS) recognised the need to open up opportunities to admin and clerical staff, who don’t necessarily have higher qualifications, to develop into higher managerial roles. They offer UHS admin and clerical staff a management training scheme aimed at non-graduates which is linked to doing the Chartered Manager Apprenticeship over two to three years.
