Broaden your apprentices’ learning and experience this summer

Group of apprentices on summer school

For those considering our 2018 specialist summer school for hospital engineering apprentices there are just a few places remaining, so we would encourage booking your place as soon as possible.

For a week, from 30 July – 03 August 2018, the programme will deliver an overview of key healthcare engineering disciplines, at Eastwood Park’s unique facility in Gloucestershire. With access to a number of simulated environments, including an operating theatre, decontamination lab, plant room and air conditioning lab, learners will benefit from a stimulating mix of practical and theoretical learning, away from the stresses of a ‘live’ hospital site. Topics include:

  • electrical installations in medical locations
  • medical gas safety
  • electrical safety testing for medical equipment
  • ventilation systems in healthcare
  • fundamental knowledge of water hygiene
  • decontamination & sterilization equipment

Topics will always be taught in relation to the Health Technical Memoranda (HTMs), providing learners with a useful overview of their impact upon the design, installation and operation of building and engineering technology used in the delivery of healthcare.

It’s not all work though - there will also be a number of fun, social sessions in the evenings to relax and network. Although you do need to working in a relevant role to attend the week, we are keen to stress that prior knowledge of all of the above is not necessary and the programme is suitable for those working across range of mechanical and electrical disciplines in healthcare.

This will be the 6th summer school that we will have delivered – those on previous dates commented, “I came with next to no knowledge on most of the subjects; I feel I have learnt a lot”, and “I have acquired a far greater understanding of HTMs and crucial hospital systems, which will benefit me at work. Trainers went above and beyond to fully explain everything and answer our questions.”

Caught up in the day to day pressures of keeping a hospital operational, the time to expose learners to the whole range of areas open to them within a healthcare engineering career is often lacking.
