Apprenticeships at The Royal

As one of the largest employers in Chesterfield and North Derbyshire, Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust strives to be a trailblazer in recruiting Apprentices and to ‘grow our own’ workforce of the future. 
Apprenticeships are work-based training programmes which give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience while earning and working towards a nationally recognised qualification. 

The difference between and apprentice and an apprenticeship

An apprentice is usually an external applicant who has applied for a position in the trust via an apprenticeship programme.

An apprenticeship is a programme undertaken, usually by internal staff members, for career development reasons. 

Levy Funding 

The NHS is a levy paying organisation which means all our apprenticeships are funded. We can also gift up to 10% of our levy funds to smaller organisations such as GP's or Pharmacies. 

How to apply for an apprenticeship

External applicants: in order to complete an apprenticeship here at the royal, an apprenticeship position will need to be available. All our apprenticeships can be found via our job website which is regularly checked and updated. Please see link below:!/select_sector

Internal applicants: all existing staff members looking to complete an apprenticeship within the trust will need to contact the staff development and apprenticeship team for further information.
