Bon Accord Care recently welcomed our new generation of support workers at an open day held at our bespoke Learning Hub; to recruit new starts for our thriving Modern Apprenticeship programme.
During our open day, prospective applicants got the chance to meet our current Apprentices and experience some of the exciting services that Bon Accord Care provides. Some of the comments from those who attended included:
“I found the day really helpful.”
“The information sessions gave a clear idea of what it is like to work in care.”
“Filling in the applications on the day really helped me.”
“I hadn’t heard of Bon Accord Care before. It looks a great company to work for.”
“Loved the free goodie bag!”
“Meeting Bon Accord Care staff was really useful.”
Modern Apprentices play a vital role within our organisation, with places available in both Business Administration and Health & Social Care.
Paul Murray, Bon Accord Care Learning & Development Manager said;
“Bon Accord Care is an exciting and progressive organisation and Modern Apprenticeships allow us to recruit our talent of the future, developing our young workforce to become rising stars."
An apprenticeship with Bon Accord Care offers more than just paid employment.
"We offer ongoing dedicated peer and pastoral support, mentoring, coaching, and the opportunity to complete a fully funded Scottish Vocational Qualification. And because we are a learning organisation, we offer an extensive range of skills and talent development to all our young workers.”
All our Apprentices who successfully complete the program are then offered internal employment opportunities, or can use their qualification as a springboard to other career pathways into healthcare, nursing, allied health professions such as physiotherapy and occupational therapy and medicine.
Valerie Maxwell is the Clinical and Governance Director of Bon Accord Care. She said:
“As our young people will tell you, careers in social care are interesting and very rewarding . Our apprentices have a wonderful opportunity ahead of them. We believe that investing in our young people as they work towards a nationally recognised qualification will secure a great future for them and our service.”
There are still a few places left on our Apprenticeship programme so if you would like further information or want to apply, go to www.bonaccordcare.org/jobs or email email@example.com with the title Modern Apprenticeships.
