An Apprenticeship is a real job with training which allows your child to earn while they learn and at the same time gain a nationally recognised qualification. Dental Nurse Apprenticeships take between 18-24 months to complete. If your child lives in England and is over the age of 16 they are entitled to apply for an apprenticeship.

Your child will have access to a Dental Educationalist at all times no matter where they are based in the UK. We offer a matching service where we hold details  of employers who want an apprentice and we will put your child in contact with suitable placements where they will learn not only skills specific to the dental industry but also essential employability skills.  Your child will be required to work a minimum of 30 hours a week, which includes 6 hours of studying.
