This policy has been developed to provide a standardised and equitable approach to the employment of Apprentices within the Trust. The Learning & Development Department will lead and manage the apprenticeship programme. All Apprentices will be managed in accordance with Trust Policies and Procedures with the exceptions outlined in this Policy.
This policy applies to all Trust Managers and those with responsibility for the identification of vacancies, recruitment and development of staff. For the purpose of this policy the term apprentice refers to those staff members specifically recruited on an apprentice contract; this policy will apply to apprentices. Existing members of staff who are undertaking apprentice qualifications but not on an apprentice contract are not within the scope of this policy and should refer instead to the Education Learning and Development policy.
