An apprenticeship is a genuine job which incorporates skills development, technical knowledge and practical experience, through a work-based training programme. They are available to anyone over the age of 16 and enable learners to demonstrate their competence while gaining a recognised qualification and earning a wage.
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. With the advent of the levy in May 2017 our commitment will be heightened to involve both existing staff and new staff joining the Trust.
In the past we have offered apprenticeships in health care, administration, pharmacy, healthcare science etc and these qualifications have tended to be at level 2 or 3.
We are now working with colleagues in the Further and Higher education sectors to deliver apprenticeships at a higher level ie level 4 and degree based apprenticeships in the future.
All apprenticeship opportunities will be advertised on the Trust’s internet page and through NHS jobs so if you are interested in finding out more, please ensure you are keep checking our page which is refreshed on a regular basis.
