You’re hired! Apprentice scheme is a winner

Joined Up Careers Derbyshire, also known as the ‘Talent Academy’, has successfully hired to the majority of roles within its ground-breaking apprenticeship scheme.

Partner organisations from across the NHS and local government put together 10 pilot apprentice posts for candidates looking for a grounding in both health and social care. The positions are hosted by Derbyshire County Council and University Hospitals of Derby and Burton.

It is one of the first times in the country that an apprenticeship scheme has been run linking together health and social care, offering such a wide variety of workplace experiences and care opportunities.

In addition, Derbyshire County Council are now recruiting for 25 health and social care apprentices for people looking to earn and learn within their direct care division. Successful completion will lead to a level two diploma in health and social care and access to a wide range of job opportunities. Further information on the Derbyshire County Council website.
