NHS Modern Apprenticeships

NHSGGC

Modern Apprenticeships

NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde are keen to ensure that we have an appropriately skilled workforce to meet current and future service demands, and one that represents the patient population we serve

In an NHSGGC apprenticeship you will be working in a real job and working towards a real qualification.

Our apprentices develop their knowledge and skills on the job, and gain nationally recognised qualifications.  We view apprenticeship as just the start of a much longer term career within the NHS and once you’ve successfully completed your apprenticeship, we will support you to transition into permanent employment.

Our Apprentices are paid at least the Scottish Living Wage (£9.50 per hour) with many earning above that level and are NHS Employees with the same benefits, allowances, annual leave entitlement and pension  as all our staff.

Our Apprenticeships are open to anyone living in Scotland aged between 16 and 24 years (or 16 to 29 years for candidates with a disability or who are care experienced*)  in line with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde Youth Employment Plan and in support of our Workforce Demographics and projections.

*  The term “care experienced” refers to anyone who has been, or is currently in care.  This includes kinship care where you are living/lived with a relative who is not your parent, or looked after with the help of social work, or living/lived in Residential care, Foster care, Secure care or Adoption.
