Recruiting Apprentices

Are you what we’re looking for?

The health care services of the future will be integrated with different care organisations working together and the speed of this change is gathering pace.  As proactive organisations we want our workforce of the future to provide care which supports this thinking.   You can be part of this first step as we have developed this post to support patient/client care for adults & older people / the frail and elderly community across different health and care settings.  The post holder will rotate across different disciplines to obtain a skill/knowledge base that supports the different care

This is an exciting and ground breaking opportunity for an applicant with existing health or care experience and applicants must be prepared to undertake a health/health and social care apprenticeship with a focus on integrated working between domiciliary and acute care. You will be following an advanced apprenticeship in health/health and social care which will require you to attend Somerset College one day every other week to learn underpinning knowledge

During the apprenticeship period the post holder will be working with different teams within Way Ahead Care and Musgrove Park Hospital. Specifically:

  • Co-ordination, Complex Care, Re-ablement & Support team,
  • Physiotherapy,
  • Occupational Therapy,
  • Care of the Elderly Ward

The post holder will be required to work within well-established policies, procedures and protocols. Depending on experience of the post holder may be required to manage their workload and/or the workload of others.

This is an 18 month programme of learning and employment.

33 hours per week, shift work, weekends and evenings

This is an advanced apprenticeship that could lead to a permanent role within one of the organisations involved or support progression to university level study within the health and care sector.  Learners that achieve the level 3 apprenticeship frameworks often progress to health related degrees such as occupational therapy, pre-registration nursing and operating theatre technicians.
