Apprenticeships offer exciting opportunities to start your career, boost your career or refresh your career in many areas of healthcare. From administration and reception to management and nursing, there are a range of qualifications available to meet your needs.
Higher and degree apprenticeships bring together universities, employers, professional bodies and apprentices in a formal relationship to meet the skills needs of the economy. Apprenticeships are a priority for us and we are working with various providers to help with the delivery of a range of apprenticeships driven by employer demand.
Apprenticeships are offered at different levels - with the most recent additions being degree and higher level apprenticeships.

An apprenticeship is formed of three main parts, which are undertaken while the Apprentice is employed in a relevant job role. It’s comprised of:
Businesses have access to the apprenticeship levy – a pot of money held by the Government, which is used to pay for the apprenticeship. The benefits of apprenticeships are numerous
Apprenticeships are a cost effective way for businesses to develop their new and existing staff and hire fresh talent, while giving someone a life-changing opportunity.
Both new and existing staff can undertake an apprenticeship. There is no upper age limit. Apprentices must be aged 16 or older.
Apprentices must meet entry requirements – these vary by apprenticeship standard. If an apprentice already holds a degree, their qualification must be significantly different to the content of the apprenticeship.
Apprenticeships require that apprentices spend a certain amount of time on the job, in a role related to their subject. They are also required to spend an allocated amount of time (20%) off the job learning. Apprenticeships also have an End Point Assessment built in, which can lead to professional accreditation.
The Apprenticeship Standards have been developed specifically to align with the needs of employers and making applicants’ skills match. As part of the apprenticeship, feedback will be given to the employer and the apprentice on their attendance and progression on the apprenticeship.
