To celebrate National Apprenticeship Week, we’re shining a light on the benefits that apprentices are bringing to E-zec.
We’ve partnered with Basegreen Academy, an approved apprenticeship training provider in pre-hospital care, to provide colleagues with an opportunity to learn and train while also receiving on-the-job experience.
Jack Alexander, Contract and Compliance Manager at E-zec, is currently overseeing three apprentices at E-zec’s Hereford operations. He said: “Our apprentices started in January 2023 – despite being only a few weeks in, we anticipate that this will bring huge value to the business, including in-house progression routes and staff retention.
“Successful completion of the 12-month apprenticeship will see individuals achieve a QA Level 3 Diploma in Ambulance Emergency and Urgent Care Support (RQF). The course consists of online working, practical learning, and fortnightly two-hour review meetings.”
The 6th to 12th February 2023 is National Apprenticeship Week (NAW), which focuses on how national collaborations between businesses and apprentices positively impact individuals, companies, communities and the wider economy.
Simon Pill, Head of Learning and Development at E-zec, added: “This year’s theme of NAW is Skills for Life, and that’s exactly what we’re endeavouring to provide. We recognise that the future of E-zec, and the industry, is the next generation, and so we want to support individuals however possible to provide a truly overarching insight into the industry, and a clear and supportive career path. E-zec currently has 71 live learners on the apprenticeship programme, the vast majority of these being ACAs.”
