Liverpool Community Health (LCH) NHS Trust is taking part in a national pilot scheme to recruit local, young people aged 16-23 in a range of administration based Traineeships.
A Traineeship is an unpaid, training and development programme combined with a work experience placement. The aim of the programme is to support and provide local, young people with the skills and experience that employers are looking for and develop the next generation of employees.
LCH is one of the first employers nationally who have signed up to the pilot scheme funded by the Skills Funding Agency which is a partner organisation of the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. Their role is to fund and promote adult further education and skills training in England, including Traineeships and Apprenticeships in a way that supports economic growth.
Berni Cuthel, Chief Executive for LCH said “This is a fantastic opportunity for young people to get a real taste of what working in an NHS Community Trust can offer. LCH are really excited to be one of the first Trusts to get involved in this initiative and engage with local young people.”
LCH is holding two information events on the 2nd and 3rd of April, 10- 2pm, at their Headquarters in Liverpool Innovation Park and want to recruit 24 trainees.
