What will the apprentice be doing?
The learner will be employed in the capacity of Healthcare Assistant, with a special focus on public health and health promotion. The role will be reviewed regularly and tailored to meet the needs of the course and to allow the learner to use their newly developed skills and knowledge to support HSH in its service delivery.
What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?
The course will be organised using a proposed blended learning approach, which will primarily consist of online delivery (synchronous and asynchronous), complemented by face-to-face delivery where appropriate. Teaching and learning methods will include lectures, small group work (including desk top exercises), work-based learning and reflective practice.
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
We will support the learner through the Public Health Practitioner Degree Apprenticeship, with full employment throughout the degree and guranteed employment in the role of Public Health Practitioner upon completion.
Reality CheckThe learner will be required to sign a training agreement as part of the recruitment process, committing to completion of course and employment with HSH upon completion. There will be a requirement to work across HSH sites as part of the course but the main base will be negotiated and agreed with the learner as part of the recruitment process.
