real life stories

Apprenticeships are a great way to launch a successful and rewarding career in the NHS.

Split between workplace and classroom, they provide a fantastic opportunity to earn and learn at the same time.

A wide range of apprenticeships are available at the Great Western Hospital, in both clinical and non-clinical areas. 

More than 100 apprentices are currently employed with us, with each one using the expertise of our senior members of staff to benefit their work towards gaining a formal qualification. 

We currently offer apprenticeships in areas such as finance, recruitment, business administration and sexual health. 


Our apprentices earn a minimum of £125 per week - a reason why many young people favour apprenticeships over more traditional education routes, such as college or university. 

As well as a regular income, there's a £500 bursary for successfully completing the course and a free bus pass to cover travel costs. 

An apprenticeship also looks great on a CV and can help applications stand out from the rest as many employers favour candidates who can show they have genuine workplace experience.
