Ramsay Health Care UK partner with Hart L&D to make the apprenticeship levy work for them

Ramsay Health Care has announced that it will partner with Hart Learning & Development in a move that will support at least 500 new apprenticeships over the next 3 years.

The partnership will help Ramsay Health Care to attract, train and retain the skilled care workers they need to deliver for their clients. The health and care sector in the UK faces real skills issues as a result of growing demand for social care services, an ageing sector workforce and longstanding challenges with staff attraction and retention.

Ramsay Health Care has been working with Hart L&D since 2014 to invest in staff training and development – including through the use of apprenticeships as a means of both attracting new and investing in the development of existing employees.

Through this expansion of their partnership, Ramsay Health Care and Hart L&D will work together to build a broader apprenticeship programme including the development of structured progression pathways from apprenticeships at level 2 through to degree apprenticeships in nursing. The programme will operate across all regions of the UK.

Annette Cairns, Organisational Development Manager at Ramsay Health Care UK, said:

"We are excited by the potential of this expansion of our relationship with Hart L&D. We're really confident that the programme we've defined together will enable us to build and maintain the skilled, professional workforce we need to deliver for our customers – and we're really looking forward to seeing our apprentices progress through to the highest levels over the years to come."

James Sowray, Managing Director of Hart L&D, said:

"We love working with Ramsay Health Care and are delighted that they've decided to extend and expand our partnership to support 500 new apprentices. We're proud of the work we have done with Ramsay to date, and are incredibly excited by the prospect of working with them to build a nationwide, all-levels, programme which helps Ramsay to excel for their customers and which creates unbelievable career progression opportunities for their apprentices."

Hart L&D is one of the leading apprenticeship suppliers to the health and care sectors, delivering in a wide range of occupational areas and at all apprenticeship levels. In 2017 they have been endorsed by Skills for Care as a provider of high quality learning and development for the sector.
