Apprenticeships: employer participation in the health sector

An in-depth look at new apprenticeships in the health sector. BIS research paper number 174.



This report provides an in-depth assessment of apprenticeships in 3 broad frameworks delivered within the National Health Service (NHS):

  • clinical support roles (for example, nursing support roles)
  • business administration
  • engineering

These were conducted through 24 employer case studies. These were principally hospitals and NHS Trusts that delivered 1 or more of the above frameworks.
