Graduates & Apprentices


Becoming an Vibrance apprentice is the ideal first step towards better job opportunities and better skills. Not to mention better pay. As an apprentice, you'll be trained in areas that employers look for, such as working as part of a team, problem solving and workplace technology. As well as specific skills relating to particular jobs through a mix of on-the-job and off-site training.

We even offer the chance to sample a variety of areas throughout Vibrance on our placement scheme. Plus of course, you'll be fully supported throughout your time here and encouraged to get to know other apprentices that are learning, just like you.

Can I work across different locations?

As part of your induction, you'll be given the chance to visit and find out more about our different sites. From here, you'll be primarily based at one of our specialist social care services.

What will I get involved with?

As an apprentice you'll be involved in the day-to-day running of our services, as well as specific projects that support people to reach their goals. Placing the person at the centre of our services, you'll support people with different needs, from specific health and personal care needs, to help with communication, mobility and daily living.

When will I be working?

We usually ask you to work your shifts over a four day period, including mornings, afternoons and weekends. However, we're happy for you to talk to us about flexible working. You'll also attend training/college at least once a week.

Can I study for a qualification at the same time?

Yes. We support our apprentices to attend college/training one day a week to achieve a professional qualification. Costs are fully met by Vibrance and/or the National Apprentice Scheme.

When will I be working?

Your hours can be flexible. As a relief worker, you decide your availability and will be paid only for the hours that you've worked. If you decide to work a fixed amount of hours, you'll work various shifts, including mornings, afternoons and weekends.

Can I study for a qualification at the same time?

We support all our people to continue their professional development, and even provide funding where appropriate to gain a professional qualification.
