We have launched a campaign called #HiddenGems to raise awareness of the variety of apprenticeship programmes in the NHS in the north east and north Cumbria. This short video provides a snapshot into the lives of NHS apprentices working in the region.
Apprenticeship Ambassador Toolkit
To support trust ambassadors, careers advisers and teachers, a toolkit has been produced, which features a ten minute video with even more views from the apprentices and presentations to assist advice sessions.
For more information and contact details on the programmes available in the region take a look at our apprentice prospectus which can be found in the related documents section below, or view each trust’s profile by navigating to the right from the apprenticeship drop down.
What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of employers, which leads to a national recognised qualification. Apprenticeships are used to train new and existing employees and provide them with new skills. Anyone over the age of 16, who is not in full time education, can apply to be an apprentice
The National Health Service is one of the largest employers in the world and with a diverse workforce needed to deliver excellent patient care, apprentices play a big part in achieving this by carrying out various roles.
Some of the apprenticeship programmes we offer include health and social care, business administration, estates and facilities including mechanical and electrical engineering, dental and pharmacy services.
With a wide range of apprenticeships available, each hospital trust will work with you and offer support to ensure you are choosing the right apprenticeship, agree a training plan and do all that they can to support you throughout your learning.
