Level 5 Healthcare Assistant Practitioner Apprenticeship

About this Apprenticeship

.

The Level 5 Healthcare Assistant Practitioner Apprenticeship is designed for learners in a wide range of settings

Assistant Practitioners work as part of the wider Health and Social Care team and have direct contact with patients, service users or clients providing high-quality and compassionate care. Assistant Practitioners work at a level above that of Healthcare Support Workers and have a more in-depth understanding about factors that influence health and ill-health (e.g. anatomy and physiology).

Examples of common work activities include assisting in total patient assessment, coordination of care (including referrals to other practitioners) and higher clinical skills such as catheterisation, wound care and discharge planning. Assistant Practitioners can be found working in a range of areas such as Cancer Services, Physiotherapy, Genito-Urinary Medicine, Orthopaedics, Hospice Care, Mental Health, Social Care, Community, Occupational Therapy, Learning Disabilities as well as hybrid roles which cross traditional occupational areas. Assistant Practitioners will therefore develop additional skills and knowledge based on their employer’s requirements depending on the clinical or professional area within which they are working.

How we deliver this Apprenticeship

This Apprenticeship is delivered on a one to one basis in your workplace by your own dedicated expert Clinical Healthcare tutor.

They will meet with you every month (face to face or virtually) to provide teaching and training to help you develop new knowledge and skills and guide you through the programme.

They will then assess your competence by observing you applying the new skills at work and helping you develop a portfolio of evidence to prove you have met the requirements of the Apprenticeship.
