Benefit from in-depth practical training and gain a nationally recognised qualification.

An apprenticeship is a skills development programme where you can earn whilst you learn. Practise in a real working environment and gain valuable experience. Undertake classroom-based learning, increasing your knowledge of your chosen field.

Our approach

We currently offer apprenticeships in Health and Nursing. Nursing concerns the prevention of illness, injury and disability, whilst promoting good health and development.

You'll be taught by our friendly academics who are experts in these fields. By splitting your time between theory and practice, you'll develop an understanding of the complexity of care. You'll also enhance your ability to analyse complex problems and make sound decisions.

Our apprenticeships

We currently offer the following apprenticeships:

  • Health and Social Care: Nursing Associate apprenticeship
    Nursing uses evidence-based practice to improve the quality of patient care. During this course, you'll learn how to assess safety and risk, promote health and wellbeing, and deliver high-quality care to various patients. This is a Level 5 apprenticeship equivalent to a foundation degree or a Higher National Diploma (HND).
  • MSc Advanced Clinical Practice apprenticeship
    Advanced clinical practitioners work across multidisciplinary teams to manage care for patients. During this course, you'll learn how to safely assess, diagnose and treat patients with different health issues. This is a degree-level apprenticeship equivalent to a postgraduate qualification.
  • Registered Nurse Degree apprenticeship (RNDA)
    This course will begin in March 2024, pending validation by the Nursing and Midwifery Council.  The March 2024 cohort will be for those already qualified as a level 5 Nursing Associate. We are currently accepting expressions of interest.

For further information and to register your interest in the RNDA, please contact
