Employers are invited to complete a survey launched by Skills for Health, to provide their thoughts on the proposal of an apprentice standard for health promotion assistants.
New apprentice standards are being developed, which will eventually replace the current apprenticeship frameworks, and will describe the skills, knowledge and understanding required to carry our a specific role.
The specification of the role of health promotion assistant would include providing advice and support on healthy lifestyles, and helping with health campaigns like Dry January and Stoptober.
The survey will gauge the level of interest from employers in whether there is a national interest in developing a standard for this role.
The survey which takes ten minutes to complete, will remain open until lunchtime on Friday 13 May,
This stage of the work is being supported by Health Education England (working across the South West), Skills for Health and the Royal Society for Public Health.
