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.

Apprenticeships continue to be a government priority, the contribution that the wider healthcare support workforce make to patient care as well as the importance of education, training and development of this group of staff has been recognised, and is outlined in one of the main Health Education England national strategies “The Talent for Care”. Apprenticeships are embedded throughout the strategy and form part of the Get In, Get on themes
