The Advanced Apprenticeship takes your knowledge, understanding and skills to the next level. You will be equipped with the abilities and confidence to work on your own initiative and will be well prepared for supervisory roles in the health sector.
The apprenticeship is aimed at learners aged 16 and over who are working in healthcare settings such as hospitals, GP practices, medical centres and nursing homes. You need to be working in a role such as healthcare worker or assistant in phlebotomy.
You will attend fortnightly class sessions with the tutor to fulfil the knowledge evidence requirements. You will be allocated an assessor who will visit you in the workplace to action plan your progress, observe your practice and assess your portfolio of work.
You could progress to further qualifications such as the Access to Nursing programme at Derby College.
You can advance into a more senior or management role at work.
