Apprenticeships are a great way to learn and gain experience at the same time. This page explains the main features of apprenticeships, gives examples, explains a little about entry requirements and how to apply, and looks briefly at next steps.

What are Apprenticeships?

  • apprenticeships offer structured training with an employer and lead to nationally recognised qualifications from GCSE to degree.
  • they provide a route into different careers, including many departments in WHH as well as career progression/change for existing staff.
  • apprenticeships can take anything from one to four years to complete.
  • they are open to anyone from the age of 16.
  • apart from learning in the workplace, you may go on day or block release to a training centre, college or university.
  • you work towards a competence qualification (based on what you can do in the workplace) and a knowledge qualification, or a qualification combining both elements.
  • you will develop your skills, including English and Maths.

Apprentice Feedback


"The Chartered Management Degree has been one of my best decisions to date.  I’ve been able to meet a variety of people in the roles throughout the NHS, in my cohort there is an Associate Director of Nursing and a Head of Information Governance.  I like the fact I can learn management theory and then take this away and tailor my assignment to working at the Trust. So far I’ve looked at a marketing strategy for recruitment, an analysis of the organisation environment, performance management, project management and motivating teams (all about WHH!). I am forever grateful for the Trust investing in my development and on the back of this I have been offered a new role. I am really looking forward to starting my new job and I believe this will further help me to develop myself as a leader."  Rachel
