The Level 6 Enhanced Clinical Practitioner (ECP) apprenticeship standard was approved for delivery in May 2021. The ECP apprenticeship celebrates and recognises enhanced practice roles that contribute significantly to patient care, quality, safety, and efficiency.
To support employers to successfully implement the ECP apprenticeship, Health Education England (HEE) are pleased to share The Enhanced Clinical Practitioner Apprenticeship Employer Guide.
This guide aims to provide support to employers in understanding, implementing, and harnessing the enhanced clinical practitioner apprenticeship within their organisations; by providing employers and systems with the tools to consider their workforce requirements to ensure that through collaboration with Education Providers the ECP apprenticeship can meet their future workforce needs.
