Apprenticeships are a great way to start your career in the ambulance service.

Whether it's working in our support services or out on the road with our Patient Transport Service, our apprentices play an important part of the NEAS team.

The NEAS apprenticeship scheme is run in conjunction with Gateshead College and Middlesbrough College, with students spending time gaining on the job experience and time in the classroom to gain an NVQ in relevant qualifiactions.

Our apprenticeship vacancies are posted through NHS Jobs and are available to view on our Vacancies page.

We have one of the highest completion figures in the North East and our retention figures are also very high.

Britain's education watchdog OFSTED also agrees that we are doing a good job.

Here you will find information about the types of apprenticeships we can offer and what our own apprentices, both past and current have to say about working for NEAS. 

You can also find out what we expect from you as an apprentice, including the qualifications you require.
