Thinking of hosting a Graduate Management Trainee?

Our award-winning Graduate Management Training Scheme (GMTS) has produced inspirational NHS leaders since 1956. Notable alumni include Sir Simon Stevens, Amanda Pritchard, current Chief Executive of NHS England, and Peter Homa, former Chair of the NHS Leadership Academy.

How it works

GMTS is unique, unrivalled and prestigious. It combines successful leadership strategies from international healthcare and private sector organisations, along with academic expert content.

Fast-tracking graduates who want to develop their career within the health service, it provides mentoring, support and high-quality non-clinical training over approximately two years. Giving trainees the chance to become successful leaders in the NHS, it’s crucial in sustaining the talent pipeline.

Each trainee specialises in one of six specialisms. They also achieve placements, complete a PGCert in Healthcare Leadership and undertake additional professional qualifications within their specialist area.
