What is an Apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes available to anyone from the age of 16 to 65. They enable learners to demonstrate their competence while gaining a recognised qualification, achieved through a mix of on the job training and study, whilst at the same time earning a wage.

There are a range of apprenticeship levels that lead to different qualifications, and they typically take between one and four years to complete.

Apprenticeships bring a number of tangible benefits to NHS organisations, including creating skilled and motivated employees. Apprentices train for a specific job, and this usually means they are committed to that role.
