Are you caring, enthusiastic, and passionate about nursing? If so, then why not join our Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust Trainee Nursing Associate Apprenticeship Programme.
To begin your training as a Nursing Associate, you’ll need GCSEs grade 9 to 4 (A to C) in Maths and English, or Functional Skills Level 2 in Maths and English. You will also need to demonstrate your ability to study at level 5 foundation degree level and commit to completing the Nursing Associate Apprenticeship programme. You are also required to have health and social care experience, if you have this then Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health Foundation Trust will support you to gain more experience ( at least 6 months) by working within our workforce as a support worker/ HCA before you commence the programme.
You will undertake academic learning one day a week, a placement day one day a week and work-based learning the remainder of the 37.5 hours working week. You'll be employed to one base and will be exposed to a variety of other settings as part of your placement experience. This will mean travelling to placements and working a variety of shifts to enhance your experience and learning. The course is a two year foundation degree course and we have two cohorts a year, April and October.
Once you’ve finished your training, you’ll have the knowledge, understanding, skills, attitudes and behaviours to work as a competent Band 4 Qualified Nursing Associate.
