National Apprenticeship Week 2022

The theme for this year’s National Apprenticeship Week, “Build the Future”, encapsulates perfectly the HSH vision for apprentices within our workforce.

Apprenticeships offer a different and often more manageable route into a range of professions and industries. Many people are put off of pursuing their dream career for fear of not being academic enough for university, the inability to afford being in full-time education, or due to the impracticalities of balancing a work/learn/home life. Apprenticeships offer a solution to that:

  • Paid employment
  • Workplace based learning and support
  • Allocated study/learning time

Apprenticeships Explained

In this podcast, we speak to Laurence Ross from the BNSSG Healthier Together partnership about how and why apprenticeships work for so many people, of all ages and backgrounds.

Supporting Apprenticeships

Our very own Abi Bartlett talks about why HSH is so passionate about supporting the development and progression of employees and how apprenticeships play a key role in this.
