Hear what Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust has to say about why The Open University is a great choice for apprenticeships.

Providing flexible routes into social work with Cornwall Council

“The NHS recognises that digitisation is critical to get the best out of a limited workforce, and most importantly to get the best outcomes for our patients. We see digital degree apprenticeships as one way of doing this. We want to make sure that we attract and retain the best possible people into our health service and into Milton Keynes University Hospital, and we see the apprenticeship scheme as a way of doing it.”

Joe Harrison, Chief Executive at Milton Keynes University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
