Assistant Practitioners In Healthcare Diploma (Higher Apprenticeship)

Assistant Practitioners work as part of the range of healthcare and social care teams and have direct contact with patients, service users or clients providing high quality and compassionate care. The role requires workers to have a more in-depth understanding about factors that influence health and ill-health (e.g., anatomy and physiology). The assistant practitioner may also have responsibility for the supervision of other workers or activities delegated by registered healthcare practitioners.

This course is aimed at all assistant practitioners or those individuals that wish to become assistant practitioners. Students may also be in other roles and recruited as apprentices on to this programme. The course focuses on consolidation of learning and on embedding consistently good practice in core areas, as well as the development of additional knowledge and skills.

You will learn about a variety of areas directly relevant to the role, including assessing patients, understanding health principles and effective team working. You will generally learn within your work setting. You will be assessed through written assignments, and your competency in your work practice.

Having completed this course, workers may then progress into undergraduate healthcare profession programmes such as nurse training.
