The health and social care sector offers a wide variety of job roles such as the NHS and private sector, local authorities, management, leadership and care work. An apprenticeship combines real work experience with learning and training – making it an attractive stepping stone for many learners.
Health and social care organisations are keen to attract and train motivated learners whilst reducing skills shortages and future-proofing their business. Apprenticeships aren’t just for school leavers. Anyone can earn while they learn, adding skills and qualifications to an existing role or yielding career progression.
