Apprenticeships at University Hospitals Plymouth

University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust is committed to providing opportunities for those wishing to start a career in the healthcare industry and to develop the skills of our existing workforce to enable them to progress along their chosen career pathway.

We offer an extensive range of apprenticeships across the organisation, in both clinical and non-clinical disciplines. Our Public Sector Apprenticeship figures demonstrate this, showing that we are exceeding the target of 2.3% of our workforce, and continuing to increase both apprentice numbers and programmes available.

As an apprentice here at UHP you will gain the practical experience, technical knowledge and wider skills needed to perform your existing role and shape your future career with us. You will gain this through a variety of work-based learning, 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 offer a first-class service to our patients and service users, whilst also providing the building blocks to your bright career ahead.

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 and Maths will need to be completed prior to completion, if you have not already achieved them at GCSE grade C / level 4 or above.
