BCPFT celebrates national apprenticeship week

Black Country Partnerships NHS Foundation Trust (BCPFT) supported this year’s National Apprenticeship Week by celebrating the positive impact that apprentices have made to their organisation at a free to attend information and recruitment event.

The National Apprenticeship Event, held at the ICC Birmingham on Wednesday 8th March, is a unique opportunity for those wanting to find out more about apprenticeships and what’s on offer. Attendees were given valuable face to face time with top UK employers and training providers.

Joining forces with Health Education England (West Midlands), who opened up their stand to local NHS trusts to promote apprenticeships, the Trust engaged with an array students interested in apprenticeship vocations.

Lynn Weston, Support Workforce Lead said, “The event was really helpful and great to network with our MERIT partners from Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust and Transforming Care Together (TCT) partner Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.”

“We’ve had the opportunity to speak to many students and teachers from around the Birmingham and Black Country about apprenticeship opportunities available at the Trust and the interest in healthcare apprentices looks promising!”

National Apprenticeship Week (NAW) which runs from 6th – 10th March 2016 looks at the positive impact apprenticeships have on large organisations like this local health Trust.
