Apprenticeships

What is an Apprenticeship?

An apprenticeship is a job with the opportunity to gain a qualification as well as experience in the workplace.  Throughout your apprenticeship you will gain the skills and knowledge required for the job you are in, which will prepare you for your future career, through a mix of on and off-the-job learning, allowing you to practice and embed your new skills in a real work context.

What areas are you likely to recruit apprentices into?

There are apprenticeship frameworks suitable for our Band 2 posts in Administration, Healthcare Support, Hospitality, Cleaning and Support Services. Potentially more areas may become available.

How will the NUTH Apprenticeship work?

Unlike other local apprenticehip schemes, at NUTH you will be recruited into a vacant post, which means that we can guarantee you a job, conditional upon you satisfactorily achieving all aspects of the programme and meeting all the Trust’s requirements.

How much will I be paid? 

All apprentices will be paid at the national minimum apprentice rate, which is currently £3.30 per hour.  On completion of the apprenticeship, you will transfer directly to the Band 2 post and salary, without any further application or selection process.

What qualifications will I complete?

That depends on the type of job you are doing.

The example below shows what would be included in the framwork for an 'Apprentice Administration Assistant':

  • NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Business Adminitration
  • English Level 1
  • Maths Level 1
  • ICT Level 1
  • Employee Rights and Responsibilities

The example below shows what would be included in the framwork for an 'Apprentice Healthcare Support Worker':

  • NVQ Level 2 Diploma in Clinical Healthcare Support
  • English Level 1
  • Maths Level 1
  • Level 2 Award in Employment and Personal Learning Skills

How will I complete my qualification?  

You will have one to one tutoring and assessment within your workplace.

What makes us different?
