Support for parity of non-traditional Level 3 progression and access to Higher Education in Health and Care

19 July, 2023

NHS England has recently undertaken work to establish parity for non-traditional level 3 access and progression to higher education (HE) within the healthcare sector.

A webinar was recently held to discuss the outcomes of this project. The webinar slides and recording are now available.

This work aims to establish clear progression routes to higher education, in partnership with employers, and to assist with ‘opening doors’ to the registered professions in healthcare. It aims to formalise HEP (Higher Education Provider) recognition of the SHCSW apprenticeship standard for entry to HE level healthcare apprenticeships and undergraduate programmes.
