Apprenticeship scheme

apprenticeships.jpgApprenticeships 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.

There are three levels of Apprenticeship available for those aged 16 and over:

Intermediate Apprenticeships (equivalent to five good GCSE passes)

  • Apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications such as a QCF Level 2, Key Skills and, in some cases, a relevant knowledge-based qualification such as a BTEC.
  • These provide the skills you need for your chosen career and allow entry to an Advanced Apprenticeship.

Advanced Apprenticeships (equivalent to two A-level passes)

  • Advanced apprentices work towards work-based learning qualifications such as QCF Level 3, Key Skills and, in most cases, a relevant knowledge based certificate such as a BTEC.
  • To start this programme, you should ideally have five GCSEs (grade C or above) or have completed an Apprenticeship.

Higher Apprenticeships

  • Higher Apprenticeships work towards work-based learning qualifications such as NVQ Level 4 and, in some cases, a knowledge-based qualification such as a Foundation degree.
  • Apprenticeships take between one and four years to complete, depending on the type of framework/programme. Apprentices stay with the Trust for the set period of time and will work as part of a team whilst also having nominated study time to achieve the national apprenticeship qualification.

Apprentices do real jobs, so you're paid while you learn. You will start earning from day one of your Apprenticeship. There is no set rate of pay for apprentices, however all employed apprentices must receive a wage of no less than £100.50 per week.

When an Apprentice vacancy with the Trust does become available, it will always be advertised on the national NHS Jobs Website.

While contagious viruses are active year-round, winter is a prime time for norovirus, colds, influenza (flu), and other respiratory illnesses.

 

These infections are highly contagious, so we urge people to stay away unless their visit is absolutely essential to help reduce the spread of infection within our hospitals.

Hospitals are full of sick people, many of them frail and elderly, so bringing germs into a hospital is the worst thing you can do.  We have an active programme of infection prevention but we can’t spot visitors who really shouldn’t be here.  Please stay at home if you’re unwell to help aid the wellbeing and recovery of our patients.
