NBT in Top 100 Employers for apprenticeship scheme

Thursday, 30 June 2011

North Bristol NHS Trust is one of only four NHS organisations in the country to appear on the National Apprenticeship Service’s Top 100 Employers list.

The Trust won the South West Employer of the Year award last month in the Macro Employer category (for organisations with more than 5,000 staff) and representatives travelled to London last night for the national awards ceremony.

Sadly NBT did not win the national award but we were highly commended by the judging panel and we feature as a case study in a special supplement in today’s Sun newspaper.

The award recognises the scheme that North Bristol NHS Trust runs to train and develop apprentices in healthcare, from nursing staff to IT technicians across Frenchay and Southmead hospitals, and in the community.

Jane Hadfield, Assistant Director of Staff Development, said: “This is a great accolade, for the learners, their managers, their assessors, teachers, and the Learning & Development team.”
