How do I become an NHS apprentice?

Whilst the School has a role in promoting apprenticeships, as well as providing the standards and endpoint assessments for them, we do not handle recruitment. Apprenticeships are employer-led so if you are looking to become a healthcare science apprentice, you will need to find an employer offering an apprenticeship post; you can search for opportunities via the Government’s website or on NHS Jobs. The Health Careers website also features more general information about apprenticeships in the NHS.
