At Worcestershire Acute Hospitals NHS Trust we are committed to developing a talented and skilled workforce which can meet our organisational goal of “Putting Patients First”. The Trust actively promotes training and development within the organisation and apprenticeships form an important part of this for both new recruits and our current workforce.
If you are passionate about delivering excellent healthcare services and joining the largest public sector employer in the UK, then why not consider kick-starting your career within the NHS through an apprenticeship? We are looking for talented and enthusiastic individuals from our local community who are ready to take on this challenge by working with us as an apprentice.
What is an Apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is an integrated work based training and development programme, designed around the needs of the employer, which develops the knowledge, skills and behaviours of the apprentice against an Apprenticeship Standard. The apprenticeship consists of both theory and practice, so much of your learning is developed in the workplace with off-the-job training, assessment and pastoral support provided by a workplace mentor, tutor and your manager. Apprenticeship Standards are verified externally via an End Point Assessment process and on successful completion you will receive a nationally accredited apprenticeship qualification.
An Apprenticeship at our Trust offers you:
- Earn while you learn – practical training on the job
- Regular paid study time with a local training provider
- Mentoring and support throughout your apprenticeship
- Paid holidays
- Nationally recognised qualifications
- Hands-on experience and transferable skills
- Enhanced future job prospects
An apprenticeship can open the door to a career within our Trust. When you have successfully completed your apprenticeship, we want you to stay with us and many of our apprentices have now gone on to secure permanent jobs either with us, other NHS or public sector bodies or have commenced further professional training.
We offer Customer Service Practitioner apprenticeships, in both clinical and non-clinical business areas such as Ward Administrators, Receptionists, Business Administrators, HR & Workforce support and Library Services.
We are currently working to open this up to clinical apprenticeship opportunities as well later in 2021.
