Apprenticeships – Meeting the Workforce Challenge

Apprenticeships form a cornerstone of the NHS People Plan, which encourages an increasing number of young people into estates and facilities careers and expands routes for professional development within our existing workforce.

Apprenticeships support long term workforce opportunities across roles such as engineering, facilities management, domestic services, catering, and sustainability.

In this workshop you will:

  • Learn more about how you can use apprenticeships to upskill existing staff and attract new talent.
  • Hear about how collaborative employer procurement you can select quality employer responsive training providers
  • Understand more about the long-term benefits and return on investment apprentices create
  • Learn about how you can support the HEE / NHSE apprenticeship challenge

IHEEM Strategic Estates Management Technical Platform – Estates Strategy – The Forgotten Art?

The SEM TP is just getting started.  Formed in the Spring of 2022 it currently has 17 members with an ambition to grow to around 30 all working in smaller groups to drive forward its aims. Its membership is and will continue to be diverse and inter-disciplinary and has several initial aims which will be presented and discussed with attendees, for example:

* What is an estate strategy and when does it all start to fall apart?

* How many “flavours” of healthcare planning can you name and how do you find the right one?

* How should IHEEM members benefit from our work and how do we achieve that?
