NELFT Apprenticeships


Latest opportunities

Business Support Advanced Apprentice:
Closing Date: 13 March 2018

We are offering business administrative (non-clinical) apprenticeships for a number of different roles – they’re an excellent opportunity if you are looking to get started in a career in the NHS.

An apprenticeship is a work based training programme that focuses on helping people develop the kind of skills that are needed to perform particular jobs well. Skills learnt under apprenticeships are highly transferable and are recognised by every employer.

Our unique apprenticeship programme aims to fill real job vacancies so the experience you will receive is genuine and thorough. If you meet the required criteria at the end of the apprenticeship you may also be offered the opportunity of a permanent position if you wish to apply.

Our apprentices study at intermediate and advanced level; learn on the job from experienced staff; and work towards improving their functional skills like English, Maths and ICT if they do not already have GCSE grade C or equivalent for these subjects.

You can apply to be an advanced apprentice and get support to study for a higher level business qualification if you have:

  • NVQ level 2
  • GCSEs grade A-C
  • A Level or equivalent standard literacy and numeracy
  • NVQ Administration or Customer Service Level 2
  • an equivalent level of proven experience

Anyone over the age of 16 who is not in full time education and does not have a level four qualification (degree or equivalent) can apply to be an apprentice.

Our entry level apprenticeship opportunities are typically band 2 and 3 roles and normally last for 12 to 18 months, depending on the type of programme.
