Apprenticeships in the trust

Apprenticeships have long been recognised as one of the most of successful ways to start or further develop a vocational career.

Mersey Care is an enthusiastic supporter of apprenticeships as a way of supporting staff development. The evolution of new apprenticeship standards provides fantastic opportunities to develop career pathways in Mersey Care and the wider health and social care sector.

Apprenticeship learning is available to all regardless of age, previous qualifications and job role. The new apprenticeships range from entry level to level 7 (Masters level).

For further information and to see if development in your job role can be achieved through an apprenticeship pathway, please speak to your manager or contact your apprenticeship manager via: apprenticeships@merseycare.nhs.uk

We work with external education providers, universities, further education colleges and training companies in order to ensure we are able to offer staff a wide range of learning opportunities. New standards are regularly being approved and released for delivery.
