Advanced clinical practioner apprenticeship approved

Using ward computer

The apprenticeship standard for the advanced clinical practitioner (ACP) role has now been approved for delivery by the Education and Skills Funding Agency. 

The level 7 apprenticeship (master’s degree level) will allow employers to train new and existing staff in advanced clinical practice via the apprenticeship route. The standard also confirms that the apprenticeship will take the apprentices 36 months to complete and that it sits in funding band 10.

In 2017, Health Education England, in partnership with NHS Improvement and NHS England, developed a national framework for advanced clinical practice, which includes a national definition of the role, and framework of what advanced clinical practice is and what the requirements for entry are.

You can view the full standard and assessment on the Skills for Health website.
