Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2020

UTS Are Celebrating National Apprenticeship Week 2020

Fire It Up Poster

 

To celebrate National Apprenticeships Week 2020, we’re shining a spotlight on a few of our best and brightest learners and their brilliant achievements from the past 12 months:

 

CLAIRE - IW ENFIELD

Claire Fenwick Edited


Claire began her Level 3 Team Leader Apprenticeship in 2018, and after achieving a Merit grade 15 months later, she was promoted to Team Leader at IWEnfield.

Using the skills she gained, Claire worked on many improvement projects in her service, one of which achieved a Service Development Award thanks to her work.

The project helped people with learning disabilities gain independence and learn life skills - subjects included using public transport, accessing financial facilities, food & drink preparation, household upkeep and much more.

This is what Apprenticeships in social care are all about – learning to do things better, and making wonderful achievements as a result. Well done Claire!

 

ANTHONY - L&Q LIVING

Anthony Ulamen - Star Learner Winner

Working for L&Q Living, Anthony delivers care and support services to people with a diverse range of support needs.

Anthony brings an energy and passion to his service and works extra hard to promote the well-being of residents in his care. Not only this, but he's also very client focused, and has great rapport with clients and other staff.

Thanks to his fantastic work ethic and learning achievements made during his Apprenticeship, Anthony received the much deserved UTS Star Learner award in March 2019.

All of L&Q’s services are rated Good or Outstanding by the CQC, and fantastic employees like Anthony deserve recognition for their part in this amazing achievement.

 

JULIE - HIGHTOWN

Julie is one of our stand-out Apprentices, who in 2019 became our first learner ever to achieve a Distinction in her Apprenticeship.

She supports individuals with learning disabilities or acquired brain injuries at Hightown where currently, in no small part thanks to their fantastic staff, all care services are rated ‘Good’ by CQC.

Julie showed an amazing attitude toward learning, taking everything back to her workplace to make some incredible improvements for those she supports, and won the UTS Star Learner award in June 2019.

As a result of what she learned, she's now much more effective in her role, better able to plan high quality care for the individuals she supports, and able to take on additional duties outside of her job role to develop her career.

 

WHY WE VALUE APPRENTICESHIPS

Hightown Hemel Apprentices

 

Apprentices in Health, Housing and Social Care work hard to provide high quality care, support each-other, and above all help people live full, happy, and independent lives.

On top of this they devote time and energy for learning new skills and completing their Apprenticeships qualifications.

We proudly support them to develop their careers, support their services, and deliver better quality care and support with our Apprenticeships.

Well done all and thank you for your vital contributions!

Tailored Training

Whilst we have a wide range of programmes written and ready to go, and within any training you have in-house, we will incorporate your organisations policies, procedures and paperwork into our delivery as standard practice, we understand that sometimes you may still need a little something else, something that makes it even more specific to your organisation and your business objectives.

About our tailored training
Pilot
Pilot Schemes

For large organisations wanting to roll a programme out across the whole staff team, you may want to consider setting up a pilot programme prior to full implementation. We have worked with many customers on pilot projects to ensure programmes meet all required objectives and any change are made from lessons learned prior to full implementation.

About our pilot schemes
Value for Money
Value for money

‘Value’ to our customers has never been about the price;  it is always about the quality of the service they receive and the impact this has on their staff’s practice, their business performance and ultimately the quality of life for the people they support.

Safeguarding
Safeguarding

All multi agencies have a responsibility to keep all vulnerable adults and children safe by working in partnership with each other and sharing relevant information which could reduce the risk of harm and abuse.

About safeguarding
Care Act
Care Act

The Care Act 2014, together with a range of regulations and statutory guidance, is the base upon which social care will develop over the next few decades. It enshrines the new statutory principle of individual wellbeing, the driving force behind the Act, and makes it the responsibility of local authorities to promote wellbeing when carrying out any of their care and support functions.

About the care act
Care Certificate
Care Certificate

The Care Certificate is an induction programme that will provide clear evidence to employers, patients and people who receive care and support, that the health or social care worker who is supporting them has been assessed against a specific set of standards and has demonstrated they have the skills, knowledge and behaviours to ensure that they provide compassionate and high quality care and support.
