Recent reforms are driving the use of apprenticeship training pathways as a way of growing and developing the health and care workforce. There is potential for organisations to maximise the funding opportunities the introduction of the apprenticeship levy brings to train staff.

WYHEC 2017/18 Commitments

A key priority of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Excellence Centre is to support apprenticeship growth. In 2017/18 we committed to:

  • Working collaboratively to commission Apprenticeship provision for healthcare employers
  • Holding best practice events to support apprenticeship growth and promote the benefits of apprenticeships
  • Supporting employers to navigate the apprenticeship reforms
