NHS Apprenticeships

There are significant changes on the horizon within the health sector, including the introduction of new roles and changes to how training will be funded. Many trusts are looking at NHS apprenticeships as a way of meeting the challenges that lie ahead.

Apprenticeship and traineeship programmes can be a cost-effective way to create a skilled, flexible and motivated workforce and can help employees keep pace with developments in technology and working practices within healthcare. These programmes can also help improve the diversity of your workforce and open up employment opportunities to young people from your local community.

Our refreshed NHS apprenticeship and trainee web pages will help you keep up to date with recent policy changes and provide key resources to help you grow and develop the workforce you need for the future.
