Bands 2-4 development pathway
We have launched a new development and career pathway for our healthcare assistants. This innovative new pathway is allowing us to provide apprenticeships and a wide range of other programmes, so healthcare assistants can build on their existing knowledge.
The new pathway gives a clear understanding of the skills and knowledge required for each post. It gives staff the opportunity through training to gaining these skills and progress their career.
For HCAs who then want to progress onto formal nurse training we are working closely with universities to provide apprenticeships in healthcare which will lead to nurse training.
As well as developing the skills of our existing staff, the pathway includes proposals to link with locals schools to encourage students to consider careers in healthcare.
