BCHFT Careers – Apprenticeships

BCHFT Careers iconHere at Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and expertise. An apprenticeship can help people achieve their long-term career aspirations.

We are committed to developing the NHS workforce of the future and to widening access to our vacancies.

One of the ways in which we seek to do this is by continuing to increase the number and diversity of direct entry apprenticeship roles available for members of our local communities to apply to.

Why Apprenticeships?

Apprenticeships provide opportunities for people to learn on the job, both for new starters to the NHS and for existing members of staff, allowing learners the opportunity to gain a qualification and apply their learning while continuing to earn a salary.

Apprenticeships offer structured training with an employer and lead to nationally recognised qualifications from GCSE to degree or masters level.

An Apprenticeship sets people up to achieve their long-term career aspirations.

That’s why we offer Apprenticeships to everybody – from school leavers and job seekers taking their first steps into the health and social care sector, through to existing members of our workforce who want to further their career.
