What’s in the Apprenticeship?
Most learning happens on the job, learning from experienced work colleagues. There’s some time away from work to learn and practice new skills.
What’s required from an Apprentice:
Rathbone emphasises employment skills so Apprentices understand they need to be smart, well presented, punctual and to behave in a professional manner to get ahead.
They’ll need to enjoy working with people – they’ll need lots of patience, be good at listening and be able to keep calm under pressure.
How long does an Apprenticeship last?
People must be able to perform the job to national standards so it depends on how fast someone learns.
If someone left school with no other experience in health and social care, they could achieve their Apprenticeship in around 14 months.
What qualifications can be achieved?
By law, people must have an enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check before they can start work. Rathbone will arrange this for Apprentices.
Apprentices will also be provided with the employment skills to work in the sector and will understand employer rights and responsibilities.
