We have apprentice healthcare assistant vacancies for an enthusiastic, dynamic and motivated applicant.

We have development opportunities for staff and are committed to enabling members of the Nursing team to reach their full potential through experience and additional training, development and education.

You will provide general nursing care to all your patients ensuring that patients are treated with dignity and respect. You will be able to promote a safe environment within the unit.

Informal discussions and visits to the Hospital are welcomed.

As part of your learning you will complete an educational pathway with Bridgwater and Taunton College, which we will fully support you with.

Bridgwater and Taunton College are proud to be the region's leading provider of Apprenticeships and work with a large number of local and national employers to train the next generation of professionals. The College’s dedicated Business Development team is highly experienced in the development and delivery of Apprenticeship solutions.

This is a fixed term contract, gaining valuable work experience and a level 2 apprenticeship.

An Apprenticeship is a work-based training programme designed around the needs of both employers and employees, which leads to nationally recognised qualifications for the apprentice.

This training is flexible and is predominantly on-the-job meaning, it takes place on your work premises. An apprenticeship will ensure that you are properly trained to perform the job you need to do.

Anyone can be an apprentice, from a school leaver looking to enter the workplace to an existing employee who wants to progress in their chosen career.
