We provide a clear learning programme to take apprentices from entry through to the gateway for end-point assessment.

You can use our on-programme offer regardless of whether you are using Pearson as your end-point assessment organisation or not.


In order to meet the apprenticeship standard apprentices will be required to hold or achieve:

Pearson BTEC Level 2 Diploma in Healthcare Science

  • Minimum of Level 1 English and attempt a Level 2 English
  • Minimum of Level 1 maths and attempt a Level 2 maths
  • Collect evidence of personal and professional development gained from 2 multisource feedback (MSF) exercises conducted at approximately 3 months from the start of the apprenticeship and 4 months from completion of the apprenticeship.

The on-programme pace will be driven by the apprentice as well as by the breadth of experience an employer can offer prior to the minimum of 12 months, after which end-point assessment will take place.

As both a vocational and academic awarding organisation, we can offer a wide range of English and maths qualifications in line with your standards’ requirements from Functional Skills through to GCSEs.
