Please visit our guides and Apprenticeship Pathways below for further information:


An Apprenticeship is a real job where you learn, gain experience and get paid. You’re an employee with a contract of employment and holiday leave. By the end of an Apprenticeship, you’ll have the right skills and knowledge needed for your chosen career. There are over 150 clinical and non-clinical Apprenticeships available in Healthcare and they range from level 2 to 7 and can take time anytime between 12 and 58 months to complete.

You can start an Apprenticeship whether you’re starting your career, want a job change or you’re upskilling in your current job.

To become an Apprentice in England, you must:

  • Be 16 or over 
  • Be not already in full-time education
  • Live in England

As an Apprentice you’ll:

  • Learn and train for a specific job
  • Get paid and receive holiday pay
  • Get hands-on experience in a real job
  • Study for at least 20% of your working hours – usually at a college, university or with a training provider or at your place of work
  • Complete assessments during and at the end of your Apprenticeship
  • Be on a career pathway with lots of future potential!

Apprenticeships are a great steppingstone into the NHS and you may start an Apprenticeship in one area and then progress to another one within your Healthcare career!

Over 180 Alder Hey staff have signed up to take an Apprenticeship which is supporting us with plugging skills gaps and workforce planning!

‚ÄčThe NHS has so much to offer, did you know that you could do Apprenticeships in all of these things?
