Apprenticeships in Primary Care

We are working with PCNs and practices to support the prioritisation of apprenticeship programmes aligned to workforce plans and roles/skills shortages.

Apprenticeships offer an exciting opportunity for employers to recruit and develop new staff and can be a cost-effective way to create a more skilled, diverse, flexible and motivated workforce. They are a key way for people to learn on the job, both for new starters to the NHS and for existing members of staff, giving learners the opportunity to gain a qualification and apply their learning while continuing to earn a salary.
