Apprenticeships are a great way to gain hands-on experience, develop knowledge and skills, and progress in your career.

Exemplar Health Care has partnered with Lifetime Training to offer a range of apprenticeship programmes in the care, business services, leadership and management, and professional services sectors.

Lifetime Training is a leading apprenticeship training provider that’s helped the UK’s workforce to thrive for over 25 years.

"A priority for us"

About the partnership, Head of Learning and Development at Exemplar Health Care, Natasha Furness, says: “Having worked with Lifetime before, I’m delighted to commence a new partnership between Exemplar Health Care and Lifetime Training.  

“Offering our colleagues the opportunity to gain nationally recognised qualifications whilst at work is a key priority for us."

“The sense of pride and achievement when colleagues complete their studies is so rewarding. I am confident that Lifetime will help us to deliver on our promise to make every day better for our service users by ensuring we have a highly skilled workforce.”

Ella Stenning, Senior Partnership Launch Manager at Lifetime Training, adds: “Lifetime is so pleased to partner with Exemplar Health Care to support the exciting next phase of their apprenticeship programme.

“At Lifetime, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to learn. Therefore our first priority is to ensure that everyone at Exemplar Health Care is aware of the development opportunities available to them through apprenticeships."

“As we support more Exemplar Health Care colleagues to unlock their potential through apprenticeships, we’ll help ensure Exemplar Health Care remain a first choice for specialist adult care as well as those looking for a rewarding career.”

What is an apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a work-based development programme which includes:

  • a chance to develop at work, with the same pay and benefits as any other employee
  • role relevant development
  • hands-on-experience in a sector/role of interest
  • off-the-job training 
  • formal assessment which leads to a nationally recognised qualification.
