There’s still time to submit your views on the level three apprenticeship standard being developed for senior healthcare support workers.
Skills for Health is facilitating employer engagement on the development of the new standard and is keen to hear employer views on the proposed apprenticeship standard which contains four pathways;
- adult nursing
- mental health.
Apprenticeships provide thousands of staff in healthcare with the opportunity to gain a qualification and new apprenticeship standards were recently published for level two support workers and level five assistant practitioners.
The consultation is open until 15 January 2016, you can read more about it on the Skills for Health website.
