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.

What Modern Apprentice Vacancies are available?

We have no live vacancies at this time. We hope to recruit our next intake in the next academic year i.e. 2016/2017. We are in the early stages of planning the types of apprenticeships we will be recruiting to and information about these opportunities will be forwarded to all schools within our catchment area, publicised on the Skills Development Scotland My World of Work website (, listed on the NHS Scotland jobs website ( and on the NHS Greater Glasgow & Clyde website's Opportunities for Young People section -
