As a Trust we are committed to developing and growing a talented and skilled workforce.

Apprenticeships form an important of the development journey for both our new employees and the existing workforce.

Demetrius Biazatti, Trainee Advanced Clinical Practitioner in Geriatric Medicine at CNWL reflects on his career journey and apprenticeship experience.

In a City University of London publication (opens pdf) he said: “The apprenticeship program has been a perfect platform to experience these pillars. It provided a rich blend of practical experience, academic learning, and professional development opportunities, allowing me to grow in these areas.”Demetrius Biazatti apprenticeship.PNG

He outlines four main benefits of being an apprentice include:

  • Hands on clinical experience
  • Leadership opportunities
  • Educational enrichment
  • Research engagement


Throughout this week, there has been a series of online workshops for internal staff within the Trust to learn more about apprenticeship opportunities across teams and services.

We support individuals to stay with us, with many of our apprentices have now gone on to secure permanent jobs either with us, other NHS or public sector bodies or have commenced further professional training.
