PharmacistApprenticeships are a great way to learn and earn on the job. UH Bristol is now an official main provider of apprenticeships and offers a huge range of career opportunities in clinical and support services.

An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme available to anyone aged 16 to retirement age who is looking for an exciting new opportunity to train, develop and further their career.

They allow people to gain professional skills, knowledge and UK-recognised accreditations while in a paid job.

At University Hospitals Bristol NHS Foundation you could start your career in Healthcare support roles, learning whilst earning on a minimum of £13,787 per annum (full time).  As an organisation we encourage further development of all employees to progress upward within their chosen field. 

Upon successful completion of an apprenticeship, apprentices are expected to secure the role permanently.

Apprenticeships at UH Bristol are available in a variety of roles such as healthcare support roles, administration / clerical, team leadership and management, dental and construction.

EstatesUH Bristol supports life-long learning and apprenticeships are also available for existing staff who want to develop new skills or to have the skills they have developed in their role acknowledged as they look for career recognition and progression.

Apprenticeship Standards are available from Level 2 (which is the equivalent of 4 GCSEs) to Level 7 (equivalent to a Master's Degree). There are various point of entry onto the apprenticeship career ladder to suit the needs of the organisation and qualifications of the applicant. The Trust will develop a career pathway for each apprentice to facilitate your progression from one level to the next.

UH Bristol has also begun a traineeship programme. The Trust, in collaboration with organisations such as Job Centre Plus, has launched a 10-week programme which is expected to take place three times a year.

It gives people an opportunity to train in a particular field with the opportunity to be put forward for an apprenticeship if their traineeship is successful.
