The Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education, has formally approved and published the Clinical Scientist (Level 7) Apprenticeship Standard. Clinical Scientists work across the whole patient pathway and are included in many healthcare environments, in a range of scientific areas. This apprenticeship standard is available to individuals in professions which would be eligible for Health and Care Professions Council registration as a Clinical Scientist.
It has taken a significant commitment and expertise to develop this apprenticeship standard, that meets the needs of employers and provides meaningful training and careers for apprentices whilst satisfying the apprenticeship requirements.
We would like to say thank you to Dr Robert Farley, co-Chair, Clinical Scientist Trailblazer Group and Rosemary Simpson, Skills for Health, for their guidance and support.
