It can support short courses, conferences and university level modules which commence before the end of the financial year (1 April – 31 March). It cannot be used for mandatory training such first aid, basic life support, or safeguarding. This can be accessed by the non-medical, primary care workforce in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire (unfortunately it is not available for GPs). 

Apprenticeships 

There is so much more to apprenticeships than you might think. They are for anyone, at any age, and another route into employment with their own benefits.
