Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership Apprenticeship Awards 2019

Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership Apprenticeship Awards 2019

On Monday 4th March, Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership will celebrate the first day of National Apprenticeship Week 2019 with a county-wide apprenticeship awards ceremony. 

This event builds on the success of the first Apprenticeship Awards event that was held in 2018 and provides a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the achievements of apprentices working across health and care services in our county and to recognise the valuable contribution apprentices make to health and social care, our patients and our communities.

As well as celebrating the success of individuals, this event also reflects thei mportance of working in partnership to provide high quality health and care services across Northamptonshire including Kettering General Hospital NHS FoundationTrust; Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust; Northamptonshire Healthcare NHSFoundation Trust; St Andrew’s Healthcare; Adult Social Care and General Practice.

Apprenticeship programmes provide routes into a variety of careers and our county’s health and care organisations are committed to offering apprenticeship opportunities at all levels – both for new recruits starting out on their careers and also providing opportunities for existing staff to develop and progress.

This celebration event provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase how valuable apprenticeships are both for individuals and the NHS and social care as employers. Our award categories include Team Working; Patient Experience and Personal Achievement and nominations have been received which recognise the success of apprentices working in many different job roles and settings across the partnership network. These include: various healthcare roles; nursing associate; business administration; chef; finance and engineering – demonstrating the many different apprenticeships that are available across the NHS and social care.

The Apprentice Mentor and Apprentice Manager Awards also recognise the importance of providing quality apprenticeship programmes and the right support to enable individuals to develop and progress.

Our final award presentation will be to our Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership 2019 ‘Apprentice of the Year’. The winner of this Award will be selected independently by Caron Bouckley, Workforce Transformation Manager for Health  Education England. In judging this award, Caron will be looking for the nomination that really shines and demonstrates the achievements, qualities and behaviours that exemplify an inspirational apprentice.

The keynote speaker for this event, Angela Hillery, Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership Lead told us:

“It is great to see the increase in the number of Award nominations this year and the diverse range of roles that are represented by our award winners. It is fantastic to have this opportunity to highlight the success and enthusiasm of our winners which will hopefully inspire others to look at the benefits an apprenticeship can offer.”
