#NAW2015 Taking part in the Get in Go Far Campaign

From the 9th of March to the 13th of March the National Apprenticeship Service ran their annual National Apprenticeship Week campaign. This campaign was to celebrate apprenticeships and the positive impact they have had on individuals, businesses and the economy.
Dynamic Training UK embraced the National Apprenticeship week and took part in several events with employers and also attended career events in schools.
Pauline at Copid Beech Hotel NAW2015Our first stop was at Coppid Beech Hotel where we attended with Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, one of our partners that we provide apprenticeships for. Over 600 young people from local schools and 267 members of general public attended this event. We talked to some of these young people about the benefits of apprenticeship qualifications and how they are delivered across the Trust. Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust’s representatives were able to outline the live Apprentice vacancies and spoke to the young people about what they look for in an apprentice and past experience they had with their apprentices. By attending the event together, Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Dynamic Training UK provided a united approach to attendees. This gave the young people a unique chance to find out about career and development opportunities and get feedback directly from an employer that could help them prepare for future roles.
Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Dynamic Training UK continue to work in partnership in order to provide this united approach and promote apprenticeship frameworks to the Trust’s employees.  Following the Apprenticeship week, Dynamic Training UK took part in BHFT Therapy Assistant Career Development Day, which was a success. Katie Humphrey, The Widening Participation Lead at Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, says:
“The Career Development Day for Therapy Assistants was a great success.  Previously the Trust has held generic HCA Career Development Days but we wanted to tailor the day more specifically towards Therapy Assistant staff.  89% of staff who completed the feedback forms confirmed they would recommend the day to their colleagues.  It was really helpful to have a Dynamic Training representative (Iwona Elliott) in attendance throughout the day.  Staff were provided with comprehensive information on the Level 3 Diploma in Allied Health Professional Support and 22% of delegates found the session on Level 5 Qualifications & the Access courses the most informative part of the day.  Several staff have expressed an interest in the L3 and L5 qualifications which we are offering in conjunction with Dynamic Training.  We hope to significantly increase our apprenticeship numbers following the success of the Career Development Day.”

One of the key messages for the National Apprenticeship week was to dispel any myths about apprenticeships.  Dynamic Training UK did our fair share of myth busting by promoting apprenticeships to people already in employment.

We had a drop in session to give information on adult apprenticeships for existing staff at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and Frimley Health Foundation Trust and also sign up interested employees. This gave employees an opportunity to develop themselves by getting an up to date nationally recognised qualification without having to leave their job or any commitments they have.

We also took part in an apprenticeship lunch at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford to celebrate the success of apprentices at Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust. Here we also pOUH NHS NAW2015romoted different apprenticeship frameworks and development opportunities to all staff in job roles across Bands 1- 4. It was great to see the employer embracing this movement and actively promoting the development of staff.

Our last stop was a career fair in Slough for the student at the Burnham E-Academy. Students were able to see all the different ways they can progress towards achieving future goals.
Dynamic Training UK also promoted our progression coach services where we can give career advice to learners on taking the next step towards their goals.
All in all this was a great week and we would like to give a massive thanks to all the employers, Dynamic Training UK Staff who participated and organisers who helped make all the events happen.
