The apprenticeships programme is shortlisted for:
- The Healthcare Recruitment category of the Health Business Awards – winners to be announced on Thursday 29 November at an event hosted by The One Show GP, Dr Sarah Jarvis
- The Training Journal Awards – winners will be announced on 6 December
- The Learning Awards organised by the Learning & Performance Institute (LPI) – winners to be announced on Thursday 2 February 2017.
Courtney Sherwell, Education, Training and Development (ET&D) Associate, says: “Our apprenticeship schemes are a fantastic way to recruit and support young people with new skills and fresh perspectives. I am delighted that we have been shortlisted for these awards and I would like to thank all the Trust staff who have supported our apprentices over the last few years.”
