The Dietitian Trailblazer is delighted to announce that the apprenticeship standard for Dietitian (Degree) has been approved for delivery by the Institute for Apprenticeships & Technical Education and allocated a maximum funding of £24,000.
The approved Standard and Assessment plan can be found here.
Employers, training providers and apprentice assessment organisations can now prepare for delivery of the apprenticeship.
Chair of the Trailblazer group, Fiona Moor, Therapy Manager and Professional Lead for Dietetics, Royal Derby Hospital said
“This is great news for the Dietetic profession and will help to grow and develop the workforce. The apprenticeship standard and end point assessment for Level6/7 was developed by a multi-agency group including employers, Higher Education representatives, The British Dietetic Association, Skills for Health and the Health and Care Professions Council and I would like to thank them all for their hard work and input. I look forward to the next phase of the process, with the implementation.”
