Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner apprenticeship standard consultation

16 October, 2023

In July 2022 the National Curriculum for Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner (PWP) Programmes was updated and revised to the Fourth Edition. The revised version can be viewed here. As the apprenticeship standard for this occupation is based on this, it must also be reviewed to ensure it matches with the requirements of the Fourth Edition.

The Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner Trailblazer Group is therefore pleased to announce that they have opened a consultation for the review of this apprenticeship standard.

To give maximum opportunity for everyone to contribute, this consultation is available as an online survey here. This consultation opened on Monday 16th October and will close at 12pm on Friday, 10th November 2023.

The Trailblazer group will analyse the responses received and use them to inform the next draft of the Apprenticeship Standard which will be submitted to the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (IfATE) to seek approval. The Trailblazer will also review the end point assessment plan.

Ann Carter, Chair of the PWP Trailblazer group said this:

‘The apprenticeship has become an important route for training PWPs since the standard was first approved in 2019 and I am delighted that it is now being updated to ensure that it remains fully aligned with the National Curriculum (Fourth Edition). I would like to invite you to review the updated standard and provide any feedback on the draft via this consultation survey.

Thank you to everyone who had been involved to date and for your continued support.’
