NHS Golden Jubilee are celebrating this month after once again maintaining their Investors in Young People Gold Status Accreditation.
Investors in Young People (IiYP) focuses on the recruitment, retention and development of young people, through providing a framework to organisations looking to enhance and develop their approach and skills.
NHS Golden Jubilee was the first NHS Scotland organisation to receive the award back in 2017, and since then has continued to offer support, development opportunities and employment to the young people of Scotland.
Through continued relationships with local schools, colleges and universities, the organisation has provided foundation apprenticeships, mentoring, careers and information events, placements and work experience to young people across the community.
Over the past year, NHS Golden Jubilee also introduced their Newly Qualified Nurse Induction programme which provides nurses with the support and information they need to join the organisation.
By providing exclusive access to work experience within a healthcare environment, the dedicated team at NHS Golden Jubilee have now supported over 11 students through their Healthcare Foundation Apprentice scheme, preparing them to enter college, university and the NHS workforce.
Other initiatives include supporting young people through the Young Person’s Guarantee Scheme which provides those aged between16 to 24 with opportunities to develop their interest and skillset across a wide range of careers within the NHS.
The unique Hospital, which features the four-star Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, has also opened up their facilities and expertise to the local college, offering placements to those looking for experience working in a busy restaurant kitchen.
Director of People and Culture at NHS Golden Jubilee, Laura Smith said: “We are delighted to have retained the Investors in Young People Gold award.
“The teams across NHS Golden Jubilee are dedicated to providing opportunities and support to young people in the organisation and our community so they can achieve and thrive in their chosen careers.”
NHS Golden Jubilee Chief Executive, Gordon James said: “At NHS Golden Jubilee, we are proud to provide a range of mentoring and learning opportunities to young people.
“Through initiatives such as the Healthcare Foundation Apprenticeship, the NHS Scotland Academy’s Healthcare Pathway Pilot, and work experience opportunities we are providing young people with the tools and support they need to work across the NHS.
“We look forward to further strengthening our relationships with Universities, Colleges, Schools, and the local community to develop our workforce of the future”
