SAFE WORKING ENVIRONMENT
GP Strategies is committed to working with employers and apprentices to deliver an excellent learning experience, and place the utmost importance on health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace.
We have a team of specialist advisers who provide emotional and practical support and advice to and make sure apprentices, employers and our staff have access to the latest policies and procedures, and receive training where required.
COVID-19 apprentice incident reporting process
We understand that developments around coronavirus (COVID-19) are concerning and may cause disruption to your apprenticeship. If you have tested positive for COVID-19 or have been in contact with someone who has, or if you're told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app, please follow our apprentice incident reporting process here.
Safeguarding and diversity updates
GP Strategies takes our responsibility in safeguarding and promoting the welfare of apprentices and staff very seriously, by protecting them from abuse, neglect and bullying. We work closely with local safeguarding authorities and organisations in cases where abuse and harmful behaviours are suspected or reported. For more details please see our safeguarding policy.
We all have a responsibility to be vigilant and help to stop the threat and spread of terrorism and extremism. Our staff have been trained in line with the Government's ‘Prevent Duty’ Strategy, which was introduced to safeguard communities against the threat of extremism, radicalisation and terrorism. Read the Government's guidance on Prevent Duty.
Health and safety at work
GP Strategies believes in safe working environments for all apprentices. As part of the induction process, we work with all employers providing a comprehensive health and safety review. This is followed up by regularly evaluations throughout the programme to ensure that everyone’s health and safety is protected. For more details please see our health, safety and welfare policy.
GP Strategies offers financial bursaries on behalf of the Government for those studying on traineeship and advanced learner loan courses. To see if you are eligible or for more information, please contact us on 0330 1000 610.
