“It is fantastic news that the Mammography Associate Apprenticeship Standard and EPA Plan has been approved.  This development is key to supporting sustainability to the breast screening workforce moving forward.  The role of Mammography Associates is critical within the NHS workforce and the apprenticeship will enable all employers to grow their own practitioners.
