About the apprenticeships on offer

No matter what occupation you embark upon through an apprenticeship, leadership development will be crucial to your role within the NHS and affiliated providers of care. That’s why the apprenticeships you can read about in these pages incorporate our leadership development programmes.

The NHS Leadership Academy has developed a range of leadership development programmes to suit aspiring, first time, middle and senior leaders. They are designed to be self-directed, flexible, grounded in reality and applied in the workplace so they align perfectly to apprenticeships. Our leadership development programmes are named after inspirational leaders in healthcare history including Edward Jenner, Mary Seacole, Rosalind Franklin, Elizabeth Garrett Anderson and Nye Bevan. Find out more about our programmes here.

How the apprenticeships work

Apprenticeships are an exciting option because they provide the balance between learning the theory and putting it into practice, empowering you to turn your success into consistent team success and to champion compassionate care and support.

They are suitable for those who are just starting out, upskilling, or looking for a career change or promotion. They give you the unique opportunity to be in a real job where you learn, gain experience, get paid and make a difference to the people we serve.

Apprenticeships are funded via your organisation’s apprenticeship levy, and the cost of the NHS Leadership programme is absorbed by the apprenticeship provider, meaning no additional cost to you or your organisation.

You will need an approval from your employer before approaching the provider about your chosen apprenticeship and applying to join the programme.
