We will be attending the Skills Scotland event at the SECC on 26th and 27th October.
At these events you will have the opportunity to find out more about the Modern Apprenticeship Programme, meet some of our Modern Apprentices and speak to our Employability team to hear from them why an NHS GGC Modern Apprenticeship could be the right career choice for you.
We are also planning an awareness campaign and other events across our Board area to highlight the opportunities available for young people within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.
Further details will be advised.

Why does the NHS recruit apprentices?
NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde are keen to ensure that we have an appropriately skilled workforce to meet current and future service demands, and one that represents the patient population we serve. Apprenticeships provide a mechanism for us to recruit, train and retain new employees aged 16-24 years. We recruit apprentices with the intention of moving them into permanent employment on successful completion of their apprenticeship. While apprentices develop their knowledge and skills on the job, and gain nationally recognised qualifications, we hope that the apprenticeship is just the start of a much longer term career within the NHS.
Why choose a Modern Apprenticeship?
Modern Apprenticeships (MA) offer the opportunity to work and learn at the same time. By the end of the apprenticeship period apprentices have demonstrated that they have the knowledge and skills required for the job role and are competent and experienced workers. This approach of working and learning at the same time is enhanced by a formal Modern Apprenticeship Framework which ensures apprentices gain national recognition of their knowledge and skills.
What qualifications and training will I get?
Some of the apprenticeships require apprentices to attend college. Engineers spend their first year of the programme in full-time college education and then go on to attend college one day per week in Years 2 & 3. Some other apprenticeships may require attendance one day per week to complete an academic qualification e.g. HNC (Life Sciences apprenticeships). There are also some apprenticeships that do not require any formal attendance at college e.g. Business Administration, although we often ask our training provider to deliver some additional training sessions if we think this is necessary. Glasgow Clyde College is the current training provider for the NHS GGC apprenticeship programme.
