Why Choose an Apprenticeship Within the NHS?

A Career within the NHS doesn't just set you on the path to become a doctor or a nurse as a lot of myths have you believe. The NHS offers over 350 different job roles across organisations. These range from Clinical Roles, such as a physiotherapist, a clinical support worker, training nurse associate and pharmacist and Non-Clinical Roles in Finance, Marketing, I.T, HR and many more.

By choosing an apprenticeship within the healthcare sector you're not just choosing a job but you’re choosing your career. Each step takes you further on your career journey and gives you many different opportunities to progress in whatever direction you choose.
