Richard Arm Human Art

NTU has worked with healthcare partners to design and deliver professional CPD, apprenticeships, and an academic framework that supports provider-driven development.

The embedded nature of our NHS partnerships enables greater strategic organisational alignment. The benefits of this include allowing the rapid design of innovative placements for students and graduates, for example.

We have co-developed innovative research that evaluates transformations, creates innovative techniques, and offers unique facilities such as the John van Geest Cancer Research Centre.

Higher and degree apprenticeships

We offer degree apprenticeships in healthcare and nursing.

Apprenticeships are cost-effective way to bring new skills into your business, either through training an existing employee or employing someone completely new.
With government funding to cover training costs, our gold standard teaching, and our state-of-the-art facilities, we are the partner of choice for your apprenticeship needs.
