You will be employed by the University and learn by working alongside experienced colleagues as well as completing a relevant training programme to gain a nationally recognised qualification.
Off the job learning
Training may take place in the workplace or through day or block release, depending on your type of apprenticeship. You will be required to complete 20% of your working hours on ‘off the job’ learning activities. This may include:
- personal study time
- watching videos
- attending tutorials
- completing assignments
- involvement in project work
- shadowing a peer or mentor
- learning support with your coach
- attending training sessions.
Mentoring and peer support
Throughout your apprenticeship, you will be supported by your line manager who will be responsible for helping you organise the work-based training that will allow you to meet the requirements of the apprenticeship role and to complete your portfolio.
You will also join a growing community of apprentices within the School of Clinical Medicine and the University and Colleges. If you are a newly recruited apprentice within our School, you will automatically become part of the Apprentice Networking Group that meets quarterly.
