Apprenticeships and Widening Access
Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust are committed to offering all clinical and non-clinical staff the opportunity to access high quality apprenticeship training throughout their career with the Trust.
We currently offer apprenticeships from Level 2 up to Level 7 and over 20 different apprenticeship standards.
Apprenticeships within Our Trust
An apprenticeship within our Trust can help to kickstart you career within healthcare, provide you with a nationally recognised qualification and quality workplace experience within a professional setting.
Our dedicated Apprenticeship and Widening Access Team provide support, advice and guidance to over 160 apprentices and to anyone looking to join the trust via an apprenticeship.
Widening Access includes activities related to the encouragement and increase of young people entering higher education. Widening access also targets schools or colleges where attainment is typically below average. These activities include but are not limited to:
- Work experience
- Work Shadowing
- Interactive workshops
- School engagement including careers talk
Apprenticeship and Work Experience
Important information for work experience applicants and arranged placements
As an employer that provides frontline health and care services, Gloucestershire Health and Care NHS Foundation Trust has a duty to protect its staff, patients, visitors and their families. We have therefore taken the decision to suspend all work experience opportunities while in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
While we cannot offer face-to-face work experience at this time, please feel free to get in touch to discuss alternative options.
We would still like to support all those who are interested in pursuing a career with the NHS, therefore we have taken steps to virtually interact with students and remain active in promoting our career paths.
Please contact Jo Rayer, Apprenticeship and Widening Access Facilitator, on 0300 421 8216, 07790 555354 (mobile), or email email@example.com to discuss alternative work experience options.
