Focus on Training Providers – Occupational Therapist (degree)

30 November, 2023

The Level 6 Occupational Therapist apprenticeship standard has been approved for delivery since 7th December 2018.

Occupational therapists work across a range of settings, including health, social care, education and other private and voluntary sector organisations. They enable individuals to participate in occupations in a meaningful way. In a therapeutic context, the term ‘occupation’ refers to everyday activities that people want, need, or are expected to carry out. Using a holistic person-centred approach, informed by evidence based practice, occupational therapists support service users to carry out everyday occupations, such as dressing, eating, catching the bus to work, or other activities that are important to them.

There are currently 17 registered training providers for this standard.

From 1st August 2023, the Department for Education has merged RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) and RoEPAO (Register of End Point Assessment Organisations) and is now called APAR (Apprenticeship Provider and Assessment Register).

You access information about applying to the APAR as an apprenticeship training provider.
