Congratulations on choosing to maximise your potential and your future through an apprenticeship at the Clinical School. Your department has decided to invest in you, to support you on your career path whilst ensuring that it retains a skilled workforce to enhance its world-leading research and teaching.
At the start of your apprenticeship, you will:
- receive a copy of your contract
- be visited by your training provider and compete your learner agreement
- have a full induction which will include covering health and safety regulations and Equality and Diversity
- information specific to your chosen role
- conditions of work – including but not limited to breaks, dress code, behaviour and conduct, action to take in case of sickness and processes and systems of work.
Apprenticeship programmes provide funded professional training and development opportunities for University staff. The training courses cover a wide range of skill areas that are core to University administration as well as covering technical and niche skills areas. All of the courses are accredited and offer professional, job-related qualifications. For a full list of apprenticeships currently being undertaken by University staff, click here.
Whilst these courses are funded via the Apprenticeship levy, they are available to staff of all ages and grades. The training does require a significant time commitment over a minimum of a year and as such both staff and their managers need to consider this and commit to completion.
Speak to your line manager in the first instance about whether one of these courses might be suitable to develop your skills and how the training can fit around your job. You will need to have a contract length long enough to enable you to complete the apprenticeship.
If you have any queries about apprenticeship programmes, contact your departments HR Coordinator or speak to one of the HR Staff Hub Co-ordinators in the Clinical School HR Team.
