You can join the NHS by taking an apprenticeship!

During an apprenticeship you will experience the workplace, earn a qualification and get paid.

Apprenticeships can be useful if you are just starting your career, looking for a change of role or wanting to develop your skills. You can start an apprenticeship at any age.

Our commitment to apprenticeships

We helped to design the national apprenticeship standards. We are using this role to introduce new apprenticeship entry routes into the NHS, including our Clinical Associate in Psychology role which won a HSJ award in 2022.

How apprenticeships work

Apprenticeships will usually last from anywhere between 12 months and four years.

They are split up into three parts:

  • Workplace training
  • Study
  • An assessment to formally pass the apprenticeship

Every role must comply with the national apprenticeship standards.

What apprenticeships we offer

We currently employee apprentices in 19 different roles across the Trust.

These include clinical roles as a support worker or in our pharmacy team and corporate roles such as business administration, catering and maintenance.

If there is a career that you would like to pursue as an apprenticeship, contact us to discuss how we could help.

Every role has basic entry requirements, such as maths and English qualifications. We can only accept applications if you are aged 18 and over.
