NHS Apprenticeships

13 Mar

Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber is using apprenticeships as a main stream approach to developing the skills of it’s support staff workforce. NHS organisations are using apprenticeships to attract new recruits, for NHS staff to develop their skills and take on new roles, and as a progression pathway from employability programmes.

Many different types of apprenticeships are offered. As well as apprenticeships in clinical roles such as Healthcare Support , Pharmacy, Ambulance Service and Dental Nursing, half of the apprenticeship jobs are in non clinical roles which range from clerical functions to those working in estates e.g gardeners, maintenance staff and engineers. With over 80 different apprenticeships available in the Health Sector the range of NHS opportunities on offer across Yorkshire and the Humber continues to grow, and NHS trusts are reporting the positive impact that apprentices are having on patients and NHS services.

An apprenticeship is a job with training. Apprenticeships provide staff with nationally recognised qualifications which support career progression and provide an alternative to the traditional university route.
