    1. Hi Stacey. It depends which route you wish to take in order to become a paramedic. If you are looking at joining via our Student Paramedic programme, you do require an A-Level, however it doesn’t necessarily have to be in science. Providing you have five GCSE’s at grade C or above which include English, Maths and Science and at least one A-Level then you can apply! Hope this helps and good luck!

  11. Hi my name is Toni
    Being a paramedic has always been my dream job the only thing holding me back is the fact I didn’t pass my English maths and science is there any sort of apprenticeship I can go on in the mean time to pass my English,maths and science and get in rolled with WMAS

    1. Hi Toni…
      There are a number of ways you can achieve your goal:
      You could complete an access course at college which would gain the appropriate qualification that would allow you to apply.
      Another option might be to look for one of the apprenticeships that we run within our non-emergency patient transport service and then compete the necessary learning while also learning on the job with PTS. Our CEO started with PTS, so it’s a good way in.
      Hope that helps.

      Apologies for the delayed response.
      We aren’t recruiting via that route currently, and we haven’t been told when it will re-open yet.
      The best thing to do would be to keep an eye on our social media as we will definitely highlight when we are next recruiting in that weay.

    1. Hi Chloe…
      The simple answer is that we don’t know. Best thing to do is keep an eye on our social media as we will definitely be posting information there when we do re-open for applications.
      Sorry we can’t be more help

    1. Hi Insa…
      Apologies for the delay responding.
      Yes, we will be recruiting to our paramedic apprenticeship, but I haven’t been given any clear understanding of when that will be, but most likely at some point this year.
      I’d suggest two things – keep an eye on NHS Jobs and set up an alert; and secondly, have a look at which has lots of helpful information about how you can be prepared for when applications do open.
      Good luck
