Healthcare Science Practitioner (Degree) apprenticeship standard – consultation now open

20 February, 2023

The Level 6 Healthcare Science Practitioner apprenticeship standard has been in use for several years. In the meantime the format of the standards and the requirements set by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IFATE) have evolved. The Trailblazer group has reconvened to refresh the standards and bring them in line with current requirements.

The Healthcare Science Practitioner Trailblazer Group are pleased to announce that they have opened a consultation on the draft apprenticeship standard for Level 6 Healthcare Science Practitioner.

To give maximum opportunity for everyone to contribute, the consultation is available as an online survey here. This consultation opened on Monday 20th February and will close at 12pm on Friday, 17th March.

Your feedback will be reviewed following the closing date and the Trailblazer will consider where amendments should be made to the draft standard. The Standard will then be submitted to the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) to seek approval.
