Nurse Cadet Programme to provide opportunities for young people

HUGH Baird College and Aintree University Hospital have announced that they are working in partnership on a number of initiatives aimed at providing exciting and rewarding career opportunities for young people living in the Liverpool City Region. Over the next month, Hugh Baird College and Aintree will launch a Nursing Cadet Programme, a Pre-Nursing Cadet programme and a wide range of Apprenticeship opportunities will also be available. The Nursing Cadet Programme will offer 20 students, aged 16 to 18, the opportunity to take their 1st steps towards becoming qualified nurses and healthcare practitioners.

Dianne Brown, Aintree University Hospital's Chief Nurse, said:- "We are keen to recruit tomorrow's nursing professionals through this programme and we are looking forward to welcoming cadets to Aintree. Young people will benefit from working with a range of highly skilled health care professionals in a range of areas, including one of the most modern emergency centres in the country."

Through the Cadetship scheme, students will gain a unique blend of theory based study and hands on work experience, as they split their time between the College and placements at a variety of services across Aintree. Successful applicants for the Nursing Cadet Programme will receive travel passes, free meals and will also be provided with kit and equipment. The 1st intake of Nursing Cadets will start this October and recruitment is underway now with a closing date for applications of 15 September 2017. Those with an interest can find out more about the programme and can apply via the College's website.  In order to provide 14 year olds, with the opportunity to prepare for the full Nursing Cadet Programme, the College and Aintree have worked closely to establish an innovative Pre-Nursing Cadet Programme. Based at Hugh Baird College's 14 to 16 College, the programme will not only give students the theory, skills and GCSEs needed to move seamlessly on to the full Cadet programme, but the learning experience will be enriched with master classes from healthcare specialists and visits to the range of clinical settings at Aintree.

Yana Williams, Principal and Chief Executive at Hugh Baird College said:- "We are delighted to be working together with Aintree on these exciting new developments.  Hugh Baird College have a strong reputation for providing learning opportunities complimented by employer involvement either in curriculum development or through work placement opportunities and master classes. It was this approach that enabled the College to become the UK's 1st Career College in 2014 and I am delighted to say that the Career College will be working with us on our Nursing Cadet Programmes. The Nursing Cadet initiatives we are launching are aimed at gifted, talented and driven students who are passionate about helping others. By becoming a Nursing Cadet with Hugh Baird College and Aintree, students will be gaining a unique learning experience involving work placements that will position them perfectly to progress on to a career in healthcare."

Speaking of the Apprenticeship opportunities that the partnership will yield, Hugh Baird College's Director of Workplace Learning Lynn Masterton said:- "As a result of this partnership we are delighted to announce that we will be providing a broad range of health Apprenticeship programmes that will enhance skill levels across departments at Aintree."
