Baltic Training’s newest group of Health & Social Care Apprentices, based in the heart of Manchester, have organised a committee to enable them to input towards their own programme of learning. The apprentice committee was elected by group vote and provides an outlet for students to be actively involved in their apprenticeship experience.
Baltic have recently launched their new Adult Social Care Apprenticeship at Armstrong House off Oxford Road in Manchester City Centre. The North-East based apprenticeship training provider are pleased to be expanding their service profile to the Manchester area and have already established great working partnerships with a range of employers in the area.
The first committee meeting took place this week, and was a great opportunity for the apprentices to give feedback to Baltic’s training staff on their learning so far.
Mike Gregory, Divisional Manager at Baltic, oversees the Manchester-based apprenticeship programme. He said, “We are keen to get our apprentices involved in their own programme of learning. Setting up an apprentice committee is the most effective way of ensuring that our apprentices can do this and will also provide them with a range of transferable skills to take forward in their future careers in the care sector.”
