Following the approval to develop an apprenticeship standard for Specialist Clinical Practitioner, the Trailblazer group is now formed and had its first trailblazer meeting on 11th March 2020, in Birmingham.
The group discussions focused on drafting the standard document and getting everyone up to speed with the current IFATE apprenticeship standard development process.
“We are delighted that the proposal to develop the Specialist Clinical Practitioner apprenticeship has been accepted. We made good progress in our first meeting and were pleased with the level of clarity and engagement. There is lots of work still to do but we are grateful for everyone’s input and the support from Skills for Health, Health Education England and the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.”Trailblazer Group Co-Chairs Sam Cook and Sue Haines
