To be considered for this role you will need knowledge of apprenticeships / further education within Health and Social Care, work experience, and/or other pre-employment initiatives in health or social care. You will need evidence of working and communicating effectively with a range of internal and external stakeholders. You will have experience working with others using a project management approach, of working independently without daily supervision.
