So I’ve just been offered a Level 2 apprenticeship as a pharmacy assistant with the NHS in a hospital which will last for 15 months. I’m 4 months pregnant and in terms of my rights I’m unsure what they are as an apprentice. I’m planning on taking maternity leave as late as possible and would coming back to finish my course after maternity leave be possible? Also when would it be the right time to tell my employer and would I be fired as a result?Thanks
Not sure about your provider but we can suspend learners, effectively stopping the clock on training until they return. I would discuss it with them as soon as possible but there is a concern that they might suggest you dont start now at all but reapply later.
