We offer a variety of exciting apprenticeships in all areas of the Trust including clinical healthcare support worker, health and social care, health science, pharmacy and business administration opportunities.

If you are enthusiastic about working within healthcare and would like to earn while you learn valuable skills within the workplace then an apprenticeship could be for you.

Our apprenticeships give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience while working towards a nationally recognised qualification, an attractive combination to many employers.


Apprentices earn £128 per week and will complete a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) at either intermediate Level 2 in which the programme lasts 12 months or the Level 3 advanced programme which last 15 months.

You will be treated as a permanent member of staff and the same levels of high commitment and enthusiasm will be expected from everyone accepted onto the apprenticeship scheme.
