Apprenticeship opportunities

At London Ambulance Service we offer apprenticeship programmes to help our staff expand their knowledge, skills and competencies and develop in their careers. We are delighted to be in the top 100 Apprenticeship Employees in the country and the top NHS trust.

Apprenticeships are a great way to progress within your career with us. If you’re considering a career in our Service and you do not have a paramedic degree, our apprenticeships could be an alternative route to that role.

Our Frontline Ambulance Service apprenticeships are a great career pathway that commence with a level 3 apprenticeship and allows individuals to progress right through to a degree apprenticeship and to becoming a fully qualified Paramedic in just over 4 years.

Here, you would not need to have prior medical qualifications or experience and you would be earning and learning whilst undertaking the apprenticeships and remaining employed in a frontline role with the London Ambulance Service.

Our apprenticeship programmes all involve regular block release training at our state-of-the-art clinical education centres. In addition, there is ongoing on-the-job training where the apprentice works alongside suitably qualified clinicians and are supported by our practice educators and our team of clinical link tutors.

Our paramedic degree apprenticeship is delivered in partnership with the University of Cumbria (London) and is a mixture of classroom and online learning undertaken in one week of every six and alongside existing shifts. Apprentices on this programme also learn new skills on the job, working alongside qualified experienced clinicians and from the support of practice educators.
