University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire have teamed up with CWT Chamber Training in up-skilling their staff through the apprenticeship programme across a range of vocational areas including Business, Information Technology and Management.
Key areas for development as part of the Apprenticeship programme are Maths, English and IT. CWT Chamber Training Tutors Holly Bayliss and Jenny Jones have been running weekly sessions to up-skill staff in these business critical areas, resulting in a 100% pass rate.
Jayne Harris said "I found the sessions really helpful, it has increased my confidence and I certainly don't feel phased by Maths as I did in the beginning. The on-site support and training for elements of my Apprenticeship is brilliant, it takes the pressure out of learning new skills, whilst accommodating the demands of my workload. I would recommend an Apprenticeship to staff within the trust."
Tracey Bennett Learning & Development University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire added, "Working with CWT Chamber Training has been a successful partnership over the years, our staff have gained valuable on site training and qualifications, from CWT's dedicated team."
The sessions are an integral part of the staff training and development strategy within the University Hospital Coventry & Warwickshire. Apprentices undertake a combination of online, independent and classroom learning in the subjects they require (Maths, English, ICT or a combination of these). This approach is both beneficial to the hospital and the learner, making it an effective way to learn and work at the same time.
CWT Operations Director Jan Ryan said "Due to the success at University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire, we are now using this model in other large employers including National Grid. We are aiming to mirror the outstanding success rates we have achieved at the hospital."
The hospital are pleased with the skills that the Apprentices have developed through the Apprenticeship programme and are now reaping the rewards from the on-going partnership with CWT Chamber Training.
