New pilot Healthcare Science Cardiorespiratory Apprenticeship

Details of a new national pilot with places allocated across England.

The National School of Healthcare Science and Talent for Care, part of Health Education England (HEE), have worked with employers to develop a pilot Healthcare Science Cardiorespiratory Apprenticeship. The apprenticeship includes the Level 2 Diploma or Level 4 Diploma in Healthcare Science. HEE provided a contributory one-off training grant per apprentice to successful employers.

The project aims to support the recommendation in the national report from Professor Sir Mike Richards to develop the non-registrant healthcare science workforce using apprenticeships. The pilot enables participating employers within NHS diagnostic services, in the development of  a new workforce trained with the specific skills and knowledge across both cardiac and respiratory services.

This is a national pilot, initially for 94 apprentices, to commence before March 2022. Places will be allocated across the seven HEE regions:

  • North East and Yorkshire
  • North West
  • Midlands
  • East of England
  • South East
  • South West
  • London

Where employer expressions of interest exceeded the initial regional allocation of places, regions were able to source additional funds.
