Opportunities

APPRENTICESHIPS   

CHS intends to:

  • better the public sector target of 2.3% and aspire to 5% of our workforce being apprentices by 2021.
  • use apprentices and apprenticeships for our new starters where we can, recognising that some posts do not fit the criteria in terms of career path or service need.
  • over time, use apprenticeships to develop all our team leaders, supervisors and managers, to deliver their management and leadership roles.
  • provide internal training on people skills where appropriate.
  • develop a three year plan and at the end of three years we will have a robust and well developed workforce, with the skills and experience to do an excellent job.
  • use apprentices to replace existing roles, unless an additional post is approved by the CHS Operational Committee.

 

TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

The medical devices training team has worked with Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust for the last 10 years and has become one of the national innovators and lead for delivering compliance, documentation and training resources.  The team works closely with NAMDET (National Association of Medical Device Educators & Trainers) and our equipment suppliers to develop and produce bespoke training materials.

Fair Treatment

CHS aims to create an environment and culture of openness, trust and honesty.  We encourage and celebrate diversity because broader perspectives, skills, experience and knowledge will enrich and enhance the value we bring to each other, our clients, shareholders and other stakeholders.

The Cupboard

The Cupboard is simply what we call our Organisational Development strategy – it’s about us, it’s our ‘people’ strategy. The strategy is made up of 7 important priorities. These are the 7 things that affect everyone who works at CHFT, and these are the things that we’re going to concentrate on.
