Standard of the Week – Paramedic (degree)

26 October, 2023

The Level 6 Paramedic (Integrated Degree) apprenticeship standard has been approved for delivery since 8th August 2018.

Paramedics respond to 999 critical emergencies and traumatic situations, delivering high quality and effective pre-hospital clinical care and patient transportation in a safe and timely manner. They are usually the first to arrive at the scene of an accident or emergency, before any other healthcare professional, and are required to quickly carry out a risk assessment of the scene then decide on how to best treat the person.

There are currently 6 registered training providers for this standard.

From 1st August 2023, the Department for Education has merged RoATP (Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers) and RoEPAO (Register of End Point Assessment Organisations) and is now called APAR (Apprenticeship Provider and Assessment Register).

You access information about applying to the APAR as an apprenticeship training provider.
