What is an Apprenticeship?

It's a programme of learning, leading to a qualification. The learning can be in a variety of subjects and at a variety of levels, from Level 2 (GCSE) to Level 7 (Masters). Both existing staff and new starter Apprenticeships are available.

The standard NHS full-time contract is 37.5 hours. As an Apprentice, you're expected to work a minimum of 30 hours to undertake the qualification full-time. Part-time workers aren't excluded, but must extend the length of time that they study for, to allow all of the learning hours to be included.
