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.
