Starting on 8th February 2021, this year's National Apprenticeship Week theme is #BuildTheFuture. There are 100s of Apprenticeship Standards available for almost every profession; from accountancy and engineering to nurse and healthcare support workers, from law & computer science to train drivers & carpentry. Many Apprenticeship Standards are available for the Health sector. Among those, a handful are for a niche professional umbrella called Healthcare Science. Healthcare Science represents 50+ scientific and technical specialisms.
Four Apprenticeship Standards are specifically designed for Healthcare Science to cover the technical and scientific job spectrum and offer a great career progression. However, a number of other Apprenticeship Standards could also be used to cover various job roles within any Healthcare Science department e.g., admin, management & leadership, governance, quality control, project management, and IT. The table below covers the most relevant Standards for Healthcare Science departments.
