Thousands more to be offered nursing apprenticeships
Almost 1,800 new nursing apprentices have already started their training over the last couple of years.
More people are to be offered the chance to train while they work.
England’s most senior nurse has called on NHS organisations to boost the number of nursing apprenticeships they offer to those wishing to train as a Registered Nurse.
Almost 1,800 new nursing apprentices have already started their training over the last couple of years – but NHS chiefs want thousands more to be given the opportunity to earn while they learn.
England’s Chief Nursing Officer, Ruth May last week met 17 nurses in Cambridge who are among the first in the country to complete their qualifications through the scheme.
The new NHS recruits are given a triple package of on-the-job training, free tuition fees and an annual wage, meaning people of all ages have a chance to earn while they learn to provide care.
Increasing nursing apprentices is just one part of a “turbocharged national recruitment campaign”, helping deliver the Government’s commitment to increase the nursing workforce in England by 50,000.
Delivering 50,000 more nurses.
“Boosting the number of nursing apprentices is one important way we can achieve that goal, and as we deliver on our NHS Long Term Plan we want local health service employers to ramp up the number of opportunities they offer to people in their areas.”
Health Secretary Matt Hancock said: “I’m a massive fan of Apprenticeships, and as the former Apprenticeships Minister, who introduced Nursing Apprenticeships, I’m thrilled to see so many people on Apprenticeships in the NHS.
