What is an Apprenticeship?

What is an Apprenticeship?

An Apprenticeship combines academic learning with work based practical application in a job through a work-based training programme. An Apprenticeship is no longer focused on the ages 16-24 years old; it is now open to people of all ages with varied levels of previous qualifications.

Apprenticeships in healthcare include clinical and non-clinical roles. The duration can take anything from one to four years to complete depending on which level of apprenticeship you are completing.
