At Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) we offer apprenticeship opportunities for a number of different roles and these provide an excellent opportunity if you are looking to get started in a career with the NHS.
What apprenticeships do we offer at GOSH?
Currently at GOSH, we have apprentices undertaking work as:
- healthcare support workers
- laboratory assistants.
They work on our wards, theatres, in the labs, in HR and our staff nursery.
Apprentices are undertaking various apprenticeship programmes including:
- business administration
- healthcare support worker
- healthcare science assistant.
We are currently exploring the new nursing associate and nursing degree apprenticeships and looking to broaden the apprenticeship programmes we offer in the future.
What does an apprenticeship at GOSH look like?
An apprenticeship is a work-based training programme focusing on the whole job, not just your individual skills, and will provide you with a set of vocational and functional skills qualifications, including English, Maths and ICT.
Apprenticeship qualifications are delivered in the workplace and you will be learning on the job while receiving training from experienced staff.
Here at GOSH, it can be an opportunity for both new and existing staff. Our entry level apprenticeship opportunities are typically band 2-4 roles and normally last from 12 months to four years, depending on the type of programme.
