New apprenticeships Healthcare Science Assistant (L2)
About the role
This apprenticeship has been designed to be taken by anyone wanting to work as a Healthcare Science Assistant across a range of departments within hospitals, general practice and other settings in the healthcare sector. Apprentices will perform a range of low risk, routine, technical and scientific procedures usually in one broad area of Healthcare Science.
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:
- 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.
