Why choose an NHSGGC Apprenticeship?

We believe that our apprenticeship opportunities offer young people an outstanding start to their working life.  We offer nationally recognised qualifications up to HNC level or equivalent (SCQF Level 7), paid work experience and on-the-job training from day one.

Our trainees start on a minimum salary of £16,000 per year and have access to all the benefits available to NHS Staff.  This includes 27 days paid annual leave, 8 paid public holidays per year and enrolment in the NHS Pension Scheme.

The NHS GGC Modern Apprenticeship programme is open to young people aged between 16 and 24 years and offers training opportunities in 9 different apprenticeship frameworks.  These have been developed by the sector skills councils (industry specific employer led organisations) to meet the needs and expectations of employers.

The qualifications you will gain during the training programme are nationally recognised qualifications delivered by professional training providers.   The qualifications are funded through the Skills Development Scotland Modern Apprenticeship programme and there is no cost to the individual trainee.

All trainees who successfully complete the NHS GGC Modern Apprenticeship programme will be offered permanent employment within the organisation.    We have established career pathways and development programmes within the organisation which support ongoing career development and  support employees to work towards higher level qualifications, to develop their skills and progress within the NHS in Scotland.

If for some reason trainees chose not to remain with us on completion of training then they leave us with recognised qualifications and training, work experience and references, and a real advantage over other applicants in an increasingly competitive graduate job market.
