Our Dental Nursing Advanced Apprenticeship usually lasts 12-18 months. It’s made up of theory (knowledge) and practical skills to demonstrate your understanding and competence in the workplace.
Your daily activities could include:
- sterilising instruments
- updating patient records
- maintaining equipment
The main part of your Apprenticeship is the Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing. You’ll complete both practical on-the-job-training to get real experience, and learning that develops your knowledge and understanding of your job (this learning could be online).
You’ll work at least 30 hours a week. The hours and days you work could depend on your employer.
