Higher Development Award

21 January, 2021

The Higher Development Award (HDA) is a personal development programme for Support Workers that enables Clinical and Non-Clinical Support Workers from all sectors to “Be the best and acknowledge potential”.

With support from Health Education England, the programme was designed in London 4 years ago and has provided a progression pathway for many, to access multi professional higher and degree apprenticeships as well as traditional pre-registration routes. It also provides development for those wishing to stay in the Support Worker role.

Download the HDA pathway here to understand what it covers and here to see a detailed list of the learning outcomes.

Health Education England will be holding a Higher Development Award information webinar on 29th January 2021, please contact  the Talent for Care team talentforcare@hee.nhs.uk if you would like to attend or find out more information.
