Learning at Work – A day in the life of another Apprentice!

‘Learning at work week’ we hosted an apprentice swap with Bay Health and Care partners careers team to give four apprentices across both trusts an opportunity to spend ‘a day in the life’ of another apprentice to learn about the wider NHS and all the different opportunities we have.

Samuel Cowell, Vocational Learning Apprentice, and Laura Chambers, Human Resources Apprentice, went over to Moor Lane Mills in Lancaster to join Bay Health and Care Partners for the day where they developed project management skills, learnt about the life cycle of a project, interviewed the director of human resources and got to meet the work ready programme candidates who are on a preparation to work programme at Royal Lancaster Infirmary. The work ready programme is designed to give people with disabilities opportunities to gain experience in the workplace and learn valuable skills to prepare them for work.

Both Samuel and Laura thoroughly enjoyed the day, learning lots of new skills that they can use both within their roles and assist them with their apprenticeship course.

Laura said: “I really enjoyed the day and have learnt so much, it was really inspiring to meet the candidates on the work ready programme.”

Farrah Hill and Joseph Palmer, Administration Apprentices, from Bay Health and Care partners came over to Lancashire Care for the day, they gained experience of taking minutes at the apprentice nurse planning group, had a guided tour of the Harbour wards, a question and answer session with a mental health nurse and worked on mini-projects within the apprenticeship and volunteering teams for the afternoon.

 

Both Farrah and Joe found the tour of the Harbour fascinating and got the opportunity to ask lots of questions.

The day was a real success, with all four apprentices gaining valuable skills and knowledge which they can take back to their roles. We hope to run further opportunities for apprentices in future.

    I am pleased to learn of UHMBT are planning to hand out rewards to staff. I have seen some of the above staff during my stays in Lancaster Royal Infirmary on eight occasions since April 2016.

    However, from my experience, I believe that all doctors, nursing and ancillary staff should receive an award for the dedication and care they provide to patients. I cannot praise the staff more in A & E, the AMU, and Coronary Care. The food was better than I’ve had in a pub lunch and some hotels.

    My grateful thanks to you all.
