Apprenticeships combine university study and workplace learning to enable you to gain a Higher Education qualification.
This provision of the Higher Education qualification is integrated with experience, practice and further learning undertaken in the workplace. The minimum duration of an apprenticeship is set in each Apprenticeship Standard and is based on a minimum 30-hour week.
An apprenticeship programme integrates the provision of higher-level academic knowledge, understanding and skills with the opportunity to contextualise this provision in the workplace and thus to develop occupation competency at a professional level in specific job roles.
This programme takes a unique approach to paramedic education, where the paramedic is seen as playing an integrated role within the wider NHS.
This means that our programme is designed to provide knowledge and experiences of the different areas of the NHS. This, in turn, will ensure graduates are ready to undertake a variety of jobs within the NHS ranging from the more traditional frontline paramedic to an urgent care practitioner with a GP Practice.
This programme offers a good range of employment opportunities, within the NHS and within other organisations which deliver pre-hospital and emergency care, such as offshore sites as a remote medic, within rescue services and disaster management.
