Earn, learn and make a difference with an apprenticeship. Our apprenticeships offer routes into many of the NHS careers – make a difference with a career with Bolton NHS Foundation Trust and become part of the NHS family.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to develop their skills and expertise. An apprenticeship sets people up to achieve their long-term career aspirations.

That’s why we offer apprenticeships to everybody

From school leavers taking their first steps into the health service, through to existing members of staff who want to enhance their prospects.

Apprenticeships are a great way to develop your career by enrolling on an accredited apprenticeship programme that is closely aligned to your current role, offering you the opportunity to develop your skills, knowledge and behaviours and achieve a nationally recognised Apprenticeship Qualification.

With us an apprenticeship is a work-based qualification. It is made up of three elements: Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours – that learners will need to demonstrate in order to achieve the Apprenticeship qualification, known as the ‘Standard’.

  1. Intermediate apprenticeships – equivalent to GCSEs or other level 2 qualifications
  2. Advanced apprenticeship – equivalent to A-levels or other level 3 qualifications
  3. Higher apprenticeships – equivalent to a foundation degree and above
  4. Degree apprenticeships – equivalent to a full bachelor’s or Master’s degree

We deliver a range of internally delivered apprenticeships to our own staff, including Business Administration, Team Leading and Healthcare Support Apprenticeship Programmes.

We work with a wide range of external Apprenticeship Learning providers across the region to procure a huge variety of Apprenticeship programmes for all staff, including Facilities, Finance and Procurement, Health Sciences, Leadership and Management, HR, Pharmacy, and ICT to name a few.

As apprentice, you will get to:

  • Gain job specific skills
  • Earn a wage whilst studying
  • Get time for study related to your role – 20% off the job if applicable for your role
  • Complete Functional Skills in Maths and English if needed

If you join us as a new-to-the-trust apprentice, you’ll be paid National Living wage.

Complete your apprenticeship and you’ll be supported to apply for a role with us.
