NNUH to host Apprenticeship Twitter Q&A

Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital Career Development Co-ordinator, Annie Cook, will be on hand to answer your questions on apprenticeships within the NHS, in particular apprenticeship options at NNUH, on Monday 9th March 4pm – 5pm.

The twitter chat marks the start of the eighth annual National Apprenticeship Week which takes place from 9-13 March 2015.

The Week, which is co-ordinated by the National Apprenticeship Service, is designed to celebrate Apprenticeships and the positive impact they have on individuals, businesses and the economy.

Annie Cook, NNUH Career Development Co-ordinator commented:: “This is an excellent opportunity to find out more about the NHS and associated careers. Working closely with local education providers including UEA we have developed a partnership to provide essential information, advice and guidance around all options and both traditional and non-traditional routes into a career in the NHS.

Apprenticeships have transformed the way we recruit and are at the heart of its succession planning allowing the organisation to ‘grow our own’ workforce. This exciting new talent stream helps us to create a highly trained, sustainable workforce offering outstanding patient care.”

Annie will answer your questions live via the NNUH Twitterfeed (@NNUH) on Monday 9th March from 4pm – 5pm. You can submit a question using the hashtag #NAWNNUH or you can submit a question in advance to communications@nnuh.nhs.uk.

Apprenticeships are a framework of education which combines core skills such as English and Maths with technical skills needed for specific clinical or admin jobs and also incorporates a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ). The apprenticeship is delivered as vocational work based learning which may require some attendance at college. The salary of £102.37 per week is set by the Low Pay Commission.
