Neurodiverse people need better access to apprenticeships
The Department of Education needs to rethink its current regulations around apprenticeships, says Mencap.  The UK’s main learning disability charity found that current regulation presents unnecessary barriers for people with a learning disability or learning difficulty to enter and complete apprenticeships. In 2019/20, only 12 percent of all apprentices identified as having a learning disability, learning difficulty or a health problem.  In this NHS Project Futures monthly podcast Mike Gray, Capability & Resourcing Manager at HEE, and Mark Capper, Mencap’s Head of Development discuss why neurodiverse people need better access to apprenticeships, share some of the barriers preventing this underrepresented labour market accessing apprenticeships, share practical steps employers can do to improve access, and identify some of the benefits to be gained when employing this underrepresented group  Connect with us: If you have views you’d like to share around this topic or other topics relating to education & training please get in touch with Mike Gray: NHSProjectFutures@hee.nhs.uk Thank you.  Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/nhshee/   Twitter - https://twitter.com/nhs_healthedeng Instagram - https://www.instagram.com/nhshee/ A transcript of this episode is available here.

Episode 9 – Teleclinics in secondary care: How do we supervise trainees?
Planning & Production Credits: Victoria Twigg (Lead), Sarah Siddiqui & Jane Gardner-Florence The COVID-19 pandemic has seen the NHS embrace the use of tele-medicine as a way to continue to provide high-quality patient care whilst maintaining social distancing. As we enter the recovery phase it is likely to continue to be used as the key modality for conducting outpatient work. In addition to the benefits of infection prevention, telemedicine has a host of other advantages for patients and the health service but does bring challenges to the clinician and, in particular, to supervision and the trainee-trainer relationship. In this Pandemic Podcast, we are in conversation with clinicians and trainers Jo Szram and Indranil Chakravorty discussing the key issues and trainee Vicky Twigg, reflecting on the benefits of telemedicine, how to conduct teleclinics and common pitfalls and best practice in using teleclinics as a training modality. Bios:  Oluseyi Adesalu is a differential attainment fellow in the London & KSS Professional Support Unit. Having completed the academic foundation programme, she will be commencing specialty training in clinical radiology in September. Victoria Twigg is a higher surgical trainee in ENT in North London undertaking a fellowship at HEE looking at early-years surgical education across the region.
