Have you heard about our Supported Apprenticeship programme? The programme, which launched last year,  is there to support those with learning disabilities, difficulties and/or autism (LDDA) looking to work in the NHS.

HHFT is the only NHS trust in the country to have a programme of this kind, and we are so proud of the apprentices who have joined us so far!

We know people with disabilities are hugely under-represented in both employment and apprenticeship training. By providing a supported apprenticeship programme we are aiming to correct these imbalances and proactively work towards creating equal opportunities for all. Here at HHFT, we recognise that talent and potential is everywhere and we believe that we need to give everyone the opportunity to succeed.

Our goal is to provide the best development opportunities for our staff, in a way that enables us to be a truly inclusive employer.

The programme is open to those that have first worked through our Supported Internship Programme ‘Project Choice’. For more information about Project Choice, visit our website.
