Mid Yorkshire Hospitals Apprenticeship Programme

Mid Yorkshire Trust supports an active apprenticeship programme.  Here are some answers to common questions that we get asked:

WHAT IS AN APPRENTICESHIP?

It is a vocational qualification.  That means that it is a qualification gained through assessments, observations and evidence provided about the job the person is employed to do.  An apprenticeship cannot be achieved without a paid job that fits the level and competencies required to be evidenced.  An apprenticeship helps somebody to learn and develop to be able to perform their job to full potential.

ARE ALL APPRENTICES YOUNG PEOPLE?

No, an apprentice can be anybody aged 16 or above.  Mid Yorkshire has apprentices of all ages.

IS AN APPRENTICE PAID?

Yes, they are paid.  Payment depends on the level and type of apprenticeship and will be made clear in the advert

DO APPRENTICES HAVE TO BE NEW RECRUITS TO MID YORKSHIRE?

No, existing staff can undertake apprenticeships for development within their own job role or to help them develop onto the next step in their career.  This would rely on support from a manager to provide work at the right level for the apprenticeship being taken and allow the required time for learning and development.
