The Intermediate Apprenticeship is aimed at learners who are working in healthcare settings such as hospitals, GP practices, medical centres and nursing homes. It enables you to develop knowledge, understanding and skills to progress your career in the health sector.
You need to be working in paid employment in a healthcare environment as a healthcare worker. You will need to work for a minimum of 16 hours per week.
The apprenticeship framework consists of:
You will attend fortnightly class sessions with the tutor to fulfil the knowledge evidence requirements of the apprenticeship. 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.
Your employer will need to provide you with any Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) required legally and to help you to undertake your role safely.
Upon completion of the programme, you can progress to the Advanced Apprenticeship or the Level 3 Diploma in Health.
You can advance your career in roles such as healthcare worker, nurse and midwife.
