We are committed to developing a talented and skilled workforce. Recruitment of apprenticeships is a priority within our Career Pathways Framework which includes apprenticeships at all levels, leadership development and continuous professional development.
Apprenticeships bring a number of tangible benefits to NHS organisations. They can create skilled and motivated employees and can help to address skills shortages across the workforce, including a younger, older and more diverse workforce.
Apprenticeship training programmes are open to new and existing staff
- The Trust currently offers Apprentice roles:
- Clinical apprentices
- Business and Administration
- New apprenticeship programmes under development include Estates and Facilities, Leadership and management, Trainee Nursing Associate, Assistant Practitioner and Nursing Apprenticeships
Apprenticeships combine practical training in a job with study.
As an apprentice you’ll:
- work alongside experienced staff
- gain job-specific skills
- get time for study related to your role (usually one day a week)
Apprenticeships take 1 to 5 years to complete depending on their level.
