          Apprenticeships in Primary Care Webinars

          Apprenticeships Promo WS
          Parts 1 & 2 on Thursday 21 October & Thursday 4 November
          How can apprenticeships benefit my practice? What is the apprenticeship levy? What are levy transfers? What are T Levels?

          Do you have questions about the apprenticeships available in primary care — perhaps the questions above, perhaps a couple more?

          This autumn’s Apprenticeships in Primary Care Webinars are here to provide answers — organised by BNSSG Training Hub, and to be delivered in collaboration with Healthier Together, Avon LMC, and HEE South West, these webinars will run on Thursday 21 October (from 12.00 – 14.00) and Thursday 4 November (from 12.00 – 13.30).

          They will not only provide a useful overview of apprenticeships, levy options, and the national workforce context, but also explore standards for specific roles and professions: Nursing Associates (NAs), Trainee Nursing Associates (TNAs), Registered Nursing Degree Apprenticeships (RDNAs), and Advanced Clinical Practitioners (ACPs). Part 1 on 21.10.21 will cover NAs, TNAs, and RDNAs, while Part 2 on 4.11.21 will cover ACPs.

                  A free, 30-minute Q&A session on CPD funding in BNSSG

                  To help explore the routes to becoming a nurse and the array of opportunities available, Healthier Together will be running a virtual work experience week, this July, for school and college leavers from across Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire.

                  Five live webinars will be hosted each morning from Monday 5 to Friday 9 July (10.0011.00 each time), to cover the following topics:

                  Career pathways in health and social care | Monday 5 July

                  “You have to want to be a doctor or a nurse to work in health and care, right? Wrong! There are over 350 jobs in our sector. We show you the huge variety of career pathways — and what you can do straight out of school or college.”

                  Day in the life of a care worker and nurse | Tuesday 6 July

                  What’s a typical day like? Join our webinar to hear a care worker, a nurse, a nursing assistant, and a nurse apprentice talk about their lives at work and the highs and lows of their jobs. There’ll be a chance for you to ask questions, too.”

                  Patient care and the 6 'Cs' of communication | Wednesday 7 July

                  What does it take to care for people for a living? And how do our communication skills make all the difference to the way someone feels? By the end of this session, you’ll find that communication is so much more than the words we say.”

                  Simulation time! Five health and care situations re-enacted | Thursday 8 July

                  “What would you do? We share five simulations, including a response to someone having a cardiac arrest in the street and a situation in an emergency department. We talk through the decisions taken at every stage — and their consequences.”

                  What next? Tips on where to apply and how to shine | Friday 9 July

                  “Where are jobs advertised? What job titles do I search for? How do I make my application stand out? What preparation should I do for the interview? We explain the recruitment process, plus our tips on how to stand out from the crowd.”

                  And that’s not all — for more information, please consult the flyer via the button below.

                  Lacking the skills needed to ace this process at Level 7?

                  Beginning on Friday 26 MayBNSSG Training Hub is set to run a series of 1-hour study skills workshops, designed to equip delegates with the skills required.

                  Please note: all sessions will run from 12.00 to 13.00 and cover the same material, so you do not need to come to all three.

                  In this session, you will gain tools to understand how to approach reading literature in a strategic way and making it purposeful. You will also touch on how to approach reading critically, to create ideas and arguments for your assignments and reflections. For this session, you will need to bring with you a journal article, relevant to your work and studies, that you have not yet read.

                  • Friday 21 May
                  • Wednesday 26 May
                  • Tuesday 1 June

                  Please note: all sessions will run from 12.00 to 13.00 and cover the same material, so you do not need to come to all three.

                  This session focuses on taking your ideas and reading to construct arguments. Specifically, looking at how to plan your assignments and reflections, and how to structure paragraphs. Please bring with you a title / idea of reflection that you have done some reading / research for.

                  Please note: all sessions will run from 12.00 to 13.00 and cover the same material, so you do not need to come to all three.

                  This session will focus on how to write academically at Level 7. This includes what is meant by academic style and how to write critically. We will also touch on referencing tools that help to speed up the referencing process and tips on how to edit / proofread your work.  Please bring with you a piece of writing that you have completed.

                  • Friday 2 July
                  • Wednesday 7 July
                  • Tuesday 13 July

                  All sessions will run from 12.00 to 13.00, on the dates listed. Each is standalone, so you can attend as many or few as you like — please note, you will not need to come to all sessions on a given subject, as they will cover the same material.

                  To register your interest, please contact Kerri Magnus (our ACP Lead) at [email protected].

                  Reassured me personally, and I think it provided a really useful and positive way to view things.
                  It made me realise it’s okay that not everyone thinks the same way I do.

This four-month programme has been put together for any and all new-into-post and aspiring leaders in health & social care in Bristol, North Somerset, and South Gloucestershire — to familiarise them and furnish them with skills, knowledge, and attitudes that will support them in their endeavours.

                  For 2021, however, we will be offering this programme exclusively to nurses — but as per usual, you may be working in primary, community, or social care. Over its duration, you will join four modules and engage with these pillars of leadership:

                  • Harnessing personal strengths on Tuesday 18 May
                    Facilitated by: 
                    sidekick’s Hannah Miller
                  • Navigating the bigger picture on Wednesday 23 June

                  Organised by The ACP Forum’s Kerri Magnus, this quality improvement project has been devised to establish the existing training level and needs of ANPs, trainee ANPs, and aspiring ANPs working in primary care in BNSSG.

                  Completing the linked survey (via the button below) will help to identify the modules or courses required for these individuals to meet the standards set out in the Core Capabilities Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice (Nurse) Working in General Practice / Primary Care in England. The data will be compiled anonymously, but BNSSG Training Hub and Avon LMC will keep a summary of individual requirements so that, when resources do become available (and agreed by practices), we can direct appropriate funding.

                  Please ensure all qualified nurses working in your practice whom identify as working at an Advanced Practice Level, or are working towards such, complete this questionnaire as soon as possible.
