Team NNUH has a range of pathways and access into Healthcare roles. We work closely with schools and universities to highlight how amazing and rewarding a career with us can be.

An apprenticeship is the combination of practical learning and training in a job role alongside the study of a nationally recognised qualification, and since 2010, the Apprenticeship Programme at NNUH has offered a variety of personal development opportunities to new and existing staff.

There are now clear pathways that can be taken by studying an apprenticeship for both clinical and non-clinical positions. For example, we now offer the opportunity to start as an Apprentice Health Care Assistant, before moving onto the Nursing Associate Foundation Degree and Nursing Apprenticeship Degree, or starting as an Administrative Apprentice and progressing onto a Chartered Management Degree course.

An incredible 98% of our apprentices gain employment on completion of their apprenticeship, while 92% obtain a position at NNUH. 28% of the apprentices that have stayed with us in a substantive post have gone onto study further as they look to progress their careers.

To apply for a role as an apprentice at NNUH, you must be aged 16 or over, and have been a resident in the UK or EEA for the last three years. You must not be in any form of formal government-funded education, and must not have a Degree or Level 4 qualification or above in a similar subject.

All apprenticeships at the Trust will be advertised here, and are posted as soon as they become available.

Information for Schools

NNUH has an excellent working relationship with a large number of schools, including primary, secondary, colleges and sixth forms across Norfolk.

We attend many careers events throughout the year, ranging from traditional careers fairs with a stand, to hosting presentations about careers and apprenticeships in the NHS and NNUH, to informal talks and employability days.

We have an array of materials and information plus interactive educational models and activities that we utilise during each presentation, dependent on the relevant age group. We are also present at larger local events such as The Norfolk Skills Show, Norwich PRIDE and Norwich Science Festival.
