What is an apprenticeship?

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 approximately 18 months to complete. If your child lives in England and is over the age of 16 they are entitled to apply for an apprenticeship.

At Tempdent, we have been delivering high quality Apprenticeships in Dental Nursing since 1999.  Our programmes are available either face to face at our London training centre or nationally, delivered on our innovative and interactive blended learning platform. Your child will have access to an assessor/tutor at all times no matter where they are based in the UK. 

We will help your child find a job in a Dental practice. Your child will be required to work a minimum of 30 hours a week, which includes 6 hours of studying.
