We've designed apprenticeships to provide talented individuals with the opportunity to earn a nationally recognised qualification while receiving on-the-job training from our skilled staff members.

Once you join us, apprenticeships can also serve as a pathway to upskilling.

Our apprenticeship programs vary in duration, ranging from 12 months to 4 years, depending on the specific program you choose.

When you participate in an apprenticeship, you'll also devote 6 hours per week to off-the-job training. This dedicated time is focused on enhancing your knowledge, skills, and behaviours to meet the apprenticeship standards.

Our programs have earned us multiple awards and enjoy endorsement from our senior leaders.

Find out what some of our apprentices enjoy most about their apprenticeship.

My name is Camilla, I used to be a business admin apprentice at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital and I am now a patient access officer.

The one thing that surprised me about my apprenticeship was I was instantly accepted and treated as if I was a permanent member and it's been excellent ever since.

More than 15,000 people work at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital, up to a hundred of them are apprentices, you can be one of them.

You'll get a qualification, a job, experience, a wage and lots of training. It's a perfect way to start your NHS career.

Let's meet the other apprentices.

My name's Louie, I'm an engineering apprentice. My job takes me all over the hospital, from top to bottom. The one thing I really found surprising about my job was that I never thought my role would have an impact on theatre procedures.

My name is Daniel and I'm an apprentice in sterile services and I never thought to this day that I'd be learning the names of all the surgical instruments. It's a bit crazy that I'm doing it and I've learnt how to do it but I'm very happy to be here.

My name is Jessica, I'm one of the apprentice dental nurses. I love my job and I never thought I'd have so much responsibility working closely with the dentist and being part of the patient's care. And I get a qualification at the end of it.

Camilla: Whatever career you want, an apprenticeship will help get you there. And you won't spend your day making the tea. Apply for an apprenticeship at Guy's and St Thomas', start your NHS career here.
