Apprenticeships

An apprenticeship is a real job, with hands-on experience, a salary and the chance to train while you work. You’re treated just like all the other employees, with a contract of employment and annual leave entitlement.

When you're an apprentice:

• You get paid and train at the same time, with at least 20% of your time spent in off the job training, often at a College, University or with a Training Provider
• You train to be fully competent in your chosen occupation
• You’re on a career path - with lots of future potential ahead of you

In summary Apprenticeships are more than just a qualification they provide genuine work and training alongside one another.

The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust (TRFT) has been committed to the development of apprenticeships for a number of years. After the introduction of the apprenticeship levy in May 2017 our commitment and volume of apprenticeships has rapidly increased for both existing staff and new staff joining the Trust.

We currently employ over 4500 staff at TRFT and there are a number of diverse roles available. We offer apprenticeships in numerous Healthcare settings, Administration, Engineering and many more areas. Our apprenticeship programmes stretch from Level 2 right up to degree Level 7 qualifications. We are always keen to invest and train the right people to help us provide an excellent service to our patients and visitors.

All of our apprenticeship opportunities are advertised through NHS jobs so if you are interested in finding out more, please ensure you keep checking the website below:
