Developing Cornwall’s Healthcare Workforce for the Future
What is an Apprenticeship
They are work-based training programmes which lead to national recognised qualifications.
Apprenticeships include a vocational qualification, a technical certificate, employment rights and responsibilities qualification and literacy, numeracy and ICT qualifications. All of these components together ensure a fully knowledgeable and competent individual trained specifically to the job that they do.
Level 2 Intermediate Apprenticeships are equivalent to 5 GCSEs and an Advanced Apprenticeship at Level 3 is equivalent to 2 A levels.
How old do I have to be to do an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship programme is for people of any age who are employed. Typically, a Young Apprenticeship is for someone aged 16-18 years and an Adult Apprenticeship is for anyone aged 19 years and over, however the qualifications gained are the same.
At Dynamo Healthcare Training we want your apprenticeship to be a success for you and your employer.
At Dynamo Healthcare Training our Young Apprentices are usually recruited following our Academy programme which prepares them for their role. All individuals receive excellent support and training that meets your specific learning needs and the needs of your role.
- Adult Apprenticeships are basically an in-house training programme, for newly recruited or existing staff to develop skills in line with roles.
- Adult Apprenticeships enable employers to develop workforce skills to meet client/patient needs, while drawing down funding to support delivery.
- Adult Apprenticeships are for permanent staff, with permanent contracts on normal salaries determined by their role.
- Adult Apprenticeships MUST see their tutor every 3 to 4 weeks in the workplace and be provided every opportunity to meet the training needs of their Adult Apprenticeship in house training programme.
- Employers will work with the tutor to ensure the Adult Apprentice completes their training programme and is ready for their End Point Assessment to successfully complete their programme.
