Apprenticeships with L’Arche

Find out more at our webinars on 16th February

In partnership with Springpod
 L’Arche Apprenticeships (Health and Social Care) offer a unique opportunity to learn new skills, build friendships and receive valuable health and social care training – all while experiencing the fun and joy of sharing life with adults who have learning disabilities. We’re partnering with careers platform ‘Springpod’ to present a virtual insight event where members of the L’Arche team will share their experiences.

We would love to invite you to come along and hear for yourself what makes L’Arche such a special place to learn and grow.   
On Wednesday 16th February,
we’ll be hosting two live webinars*: 

 *recordings of the sessions will be available online for one year  
Session #1 From care to community: what people with learning disability really want | 11am 
Community not institutions! That’s what people with a learning disability have demanded. But how do you create inclusive communities where one of the most under-represented groups in the country really belong? Discover what L’Arche is doing and why it’s so important.  

 Session #2 Become a community-builder – while getting an apprenticeship! | 12pm 
L’Arche is a movement with 11 communities across the UK and more than 150 worldwide. You don’t need to choose between developing your career and contributing to a life-changing cause. Discover how you could get a Health and Social Care apprenticeship while sharing life in community with people who have a learning disability.

Apprenticeship Weeks are happening around the UK (England and Wales 7-13 February; Scotland 7-11 March), packed with events and resources to give you the low-down on apprenticeships and help you as you make your next steps. We’ve decided to host our webinars outside of these weeks, on Wednesday 16th February, to give you the opportunity to attend as many events as seem relevant to you. For many students, this date falls in the half term break.

If you’re not able to join us live, the recorded event will be available online for a year.   Who are the webinars for? 

Anyone considering an apprenticeship is welcome to attend our webinars.
Those we take on at L’Arche are proactive, friendly people who enjoy getting stuck in and building community.
We think an apprenticeship at L’Arche could appeal to Psychology, Sociology or Health and Social Care students.
However, we’re much more concerned about taking on apprentices who will embrace a new challenge with enthusiasm, than we are about what courses you’ve been studying at school or college. 
 What will the webinars be like? Each of our two webinars will be around 45 minutes in length.
During that time, we’ll introduce you to L’Arche and its culture, as well as some of the people who are enjoying working with L’Arche at the moment.
We’ll make the sessions interactive, so you’ll have a chance to ask questions and get involved!
The event will be recorded and available to view online for a year. 
 What will happen after the webinars? We appreciate the time taken by everyone who applies to be a L’Arche Apprentice. That’s why we are committed to offering a guaranteed interview to all applicants who attend our webinars. Once the webinars are live, we’ll direct you to the application process.   We hope to see you there! Sign me up!
