Apprenticeships are a great way to develop your skills and knowledge whilst learning on the job. This National Apprenticeship Week, we’ll shine a light on the benefits of further learning, and celebrate all of our amazing colleagues completing apprenticeships.

At Exemplar Health Care, our vision is to ensure adults living with complex needs access outstanding specialist care and support. To achieve this, we need confident and competent colleagues. 

We’re proud to offer a range of apprenticeship programmes in care, business services, leadership and management and professional service sectors. This wide range allows all colleagues at Exemplar Health Care to access to further learning that will enhance their skills and progress their careers. 

The benefits of completing an apprenticeship at Exemplar Health Care

Expert support 

Unlike qualifications received solely in a college/university setting, you’ll be surrounded by a team of trained colleagues, who are there to offer guidance on a daily basis. Exemplar Health Care fosters a culture that places value on learning, after all, we all start somewhere.

Our colleagues are on hand to support and share knowledge with each other, which is incredibly valuable when completing an apprenticeship.

All of our apprenticeships are delivered by Lifetime, an award winning training provider. They work with our in house Learning and Development Team to deliver our apprenticeship programmes. 

Earn while you learn

As an apprentice, you’ll have a real job in one of our homes. Your salary will be the same as any new starter in your chosen role. And we’ll pay the fees for your apprenticeship, so your learning is debt-free.

Gaining essential skills and earning a wage – it’s a no brainer!

Access our benefits

Completing an apprenticeship doesn’t change the benefits you have access to. Whilst you’re busy learning and making every day better for our residents, we make sure we take care of you. 

We offer great benefits for our colleagues, such as access to wages early via fastP.A.Y.E, a 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme, access to a healthcare cash plan through Westfield Health, lifestyle and retail discounts at over 500 retailers and supermarkets, Mental Health First Aider support and an online wellbeing centre to name a few.

We’re passionate about offering real opportunities at Exemplar Health Care. An apprenticeship allows you to develop your skills, gain experience, and progress your career
