Using apprenticeships to develop internal capabilities and build career pathways

Using apprenticeships to develop internal capabilities and build career pathways

With traditional recruitment methods failing to fill sufficient vacancies across the NHS, discover how Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, winner of the People Management Award for Best Apprenticeship Scheme, commissioned a programme to support the wider business strategy by increasing the number of apprenticeships and improving career pathways for apprentices.

  • identifying skills shortages and demonstrating a clear alignment between apprenticeship pathways and workforce planning
  • improving internal communications and stakeholder engagement to bring about a culture shift and ensure organisation-wide support for apprenticeships
  • taking a data-led approach to engagement to demonstrate the impact of apprenticeship schemes on retention, health outcomes and workforce inclusivity
  • building career pathways to help staff to develop and move to fill key gaps in the workforce
  • working with partner organisations to support the growth of apprenticeships and the provision of quality patient care.
