Apprenticeships at UHP

An apprenticeship is a genuine job with an accompanying skills development programme.

Through your apprenticeship you will gain the technical knowledge, practical experience and wider skills you need for your immediate job and future career. You will gain this through a wide mix of learning in the workplace, formal off-the job training and the opportunity to practise new skills in a real work environment. An apprenticeship will give you the skills you need to get a better job and move into a career.

You will be working, usually full time, in your job role. The qualification training will be done mainly at the workplace, with the off-the-job training accounting for at least 20% of your employed time. An assessor will regularly visit you at work to observe you performing relevant tasks and to carry out professional discussions. You will receive a login to an online portfolio and complete a variety of learning modules. English, Maths and ICT will need to be completed prior to completion, if you have not already achieved them at GCSE grade C / level 4 or above.


We currently offer a wide range of apprenticeships including Healthcare, Nursing, Business Administration, Customer Service and more.
