As an apprentice at West London NHS Trust you will gain a nationally recognised apprenticeship award whilst working and developing your skills. 

Apprenticeships are a key part of government policy and the NHS Long Term Plan in creating employment opportunities for future health and care workforce. They also support our widening access agenda to help with the recruitment of staff from our local community. 

Our apprentices benefit from the following: 

  • work experience gained in a live work environment 

  • putting learning into practice and enhancing their knowledge, behaviours, and skills 

  • working with colleagues, tutors and assessors dedicated to assisting their development 

  • not having to fund their own qualifications 

  • ability to earn whilst they learn 

  • Trust commitment to staff development. 

At the moment we offer most of our apprenticeships to colleagues within the Trust. This is because we try to offer our staff the best career development opportunities available. The best way to get onto one of our apprenticeship programmes is to secure a job here within the Trust.
