Apprenticeships at the Trust
Apprenticeships provide routes into a variety of careers and offer the opportunity to earn, learn and achieve nationally recognised qualifications at the same time. They are for people looking for a job that enables them to carry on learning, and for those already in employment who want to gain further qualifications.
New apprenticeship reforms came into effect in April 2017 with the aim to improve skills and productivity in the UK. In order to support this, the government is making significant changes to how apprenticeships are funded and what an apprentice will actually do. Historical apprenticeship frameworks are gradually being replaced with newly developed apprenticeship standards. This means that we are able to offer training and qualifications to our staff which are specific to a variety of healthcare roles.
At York teaching Hospitals we are very excited to be working with local training providers to be able to offer a variety of new developmental and trainee positions in line with the vast array of healthcare specific apprenticeship standards which are now available.
Apprentices and trainees working with us will be given a full contract of employment with the Trust for the length of their qualification; therefore they will be entitled to the same terms and conditions (including annual leave entitlement) as all other Trust employees. We take great pride in training the highest quality staff to provide the best patient experience possible, so every effort will be made to work closely with our apprentices to ensure that there are onward career prospects with us after the completion of the qualification.
If you have any queries, please contact the Trust Work Based Learning Team on 01723 385242.
When an apprenticeship or trainee vacancy is available within the Trust, these will be advertised on the national NHS Jobs Website as well as on our local Trust Recruitment Pages.
