Apprenticeships


We run apprenticeships across a range of departments within our Trust. Apprenticeships allow you to earn whilst learning and working towards gaining a nationally recognised qualification. This is a great opportunity to develop your skills and progress your career.

Apprenticeships include elements of on-the-job and off-the-job training. You can learn at a pace that suits you with the support of a Trainer Assessor and your line manager.

We're a Living Wage Employer. And on top of our other rewards, you'll also be eligible for an NUS card, which gives you a range of benefits and discounts.
