It's National Apprenticeship Week 2021 #NAW2021

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.

Details of each Standard can be found on the Institute for Apprenticeships website or direct links are available on
