We are the future of healthcare

NCH&C offers a range of different clinical and support services apprenticeships at various entry routes to meet the learning requirements of our staff and varying needs of our patients. They range from new start apprenticeships, right up to degree and masters level.

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships allow you to combine work and study by mixing new training with classroom/tutor learning. Completing an apprenticeship gives you the chance to gain the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in your job role and possibly to progress onto further roles or qualifications. We know that there is a lot of misconception about apprenticeships and lots of things you might not know about these qualifications.

To help, we’ve compiled a handy page called “What’s the deal with apprenticeships? which hopefully answers the questions we get asked a lot about apprenticeships.

We also have loads of stories from past and present NCH&C apprentices on the “Our apprenticeship journey” page to help inspire you to starting your apprenticeship journey.

NCH&C offers a wide-range of apprenticeships in all areas of the trust including nursing, nursing practitioner and healthcare assistant, Allied Health Professions (Physiotherapy, Podiatry, Dietetics, Occupational Health), Human Resources, Admin, IT, Finance, and more.

HR Co-ordinator

I previously worked in insurance and moved to the NHS to pursue an interest in HR. I'd always enjoyed training new members of staff and was looking for an advisory role. After studying for my CIPD Level 5 with NCH&C, I was offered a position as an HR Coordinator.
