Vacancies are now open and the health board will be promoting the opportunities at a range of events including Scottish Apprenticeship Week, school events, the Glasgow Guarantee event at Glasgow City Chambers, an open day at Glasgow Clyde College, and information events across NHSGGC sites.

“Offering young people the opportunity to train in a skill that could shape their future is a role we’re very proud of.
“Our MA programme provides a well respected foothold on the employment ladder and a chance for young people to develop a career with Scotland’s largest health board.
“The feedback from directors and managers since we started offering MAs has been very positive. During that time, the enthusiasm and commitment shown by the young people has been excellent.
“The programme isn’t just focused on healthcare and I’d encourage young people to apply as it is a great way of opening up exciting career opportunities with nationally recognised qualifications.”
