What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a job which has a very structured education framework to support the role. It provides on-the-job training so that you gain work experience that will enhance your future employment prospects along with achieveing a nationally recognised qualification. You will also earn whilst you learn!
Criteria for existing staff members are as follows; must have lived in the UK for a minimum of 3 years and if they hold a degree or level 4 or above qualification, it must not be in a similar subject to the apprenticeship they wish to apply for, are eligible for funding to undertake an apprenticeship framework/standard providing the selected programme is achievable within the employee’s job role.
The Apprenticeships are delivered by a College or Training Provider, mainly if not completely within the workplace. Apprenticeship frameworks have replaced NVQ’s as stand alone qualifications and are a combination of qualifications, which include Literacy, Numeracy, ICT, Technical Certificates, Personal Development and a NVQ Diploma portfolio, all of which need to be completed and passed to obtain the qualification

Being an NNUH Apprentice
Currently we employ new Apprentices on either a Level 2 or Level 3 Framework / Standard. Newly appointed Apprentices are new members of staff recruited by the Trust under a 12 – 20 month fixed term contract (depending on the level / subject).
New Apprentices receive the National Apprenticeship wage of £3.70 an hour (£138.75 per week), alongside a travel allowance of £26.25 per month – this is equivalent to a First Bus bus pass. After one year on programme, Apprentices will receive National Minimum Wage for their age.
Apprentice posts are proving very successful within the NNUH and are also a great platform for a future career within the NHS and Healthcare Sector.
98% of our Apprentices go onto employment, whilst 92% gain employment within the Trust.
