Barchester Healthcare is partnering with Hart Learning & Development (Hart L&D) to create over 400 apprenticeship opportunities over the next two years.
Under a deal signed on the first day of National Apprentice Week, Hart L&D will take over Barchester’s apprenticeships and work-based learning for social care and business administration roles.
Pete Calveley, CEO for Barchester Healthcare, (pictured) said: “Barchester are extremely excited to partner with Hart Learning and Development for our apprenticeship provision. Hart L&D are a forward-thinking, passionate and innovative further education provider, with a proven track record and wealth of expertise. We have shared values of exceeding expectations and excellence of service, and together we will be able to offer high quality training and development opportunities to Barchester staff.”
Matt Hamnett, CEO of the Hart Learning Group, added: “We’re delighted that Barchester have chosen to work with us. They’re a leading light in their sector with a genuine commitment to developing their people. Their involvement in the development of new apprenticeship standards for the health and social care sector speaks to their enthusiasm for apprenticeships and emerging talent.
“We believe passionately in the power of partnerships. We love it when clients afford us the opportunity to help them shape their overall approach, as well as delivering the great training they need to improve and grow their business. With the new apprenticeship levy less than six months away we’re clear that partnership models, rather than old, cold, supplier relationships are the route to success.”
