The University of Wolverhampton is bringing new life blood to its growing Degree Apprenticeship portfolio with the introduction of a work-based course for Healthcare Science Practitioners.
The programme, which is a professionally accredited course by the National School of Healthcare Science (Health Education England) and the Registration Council for Clinical Physiologists (RCCP)), is currently delivered as part of the Healthcare Science Practitioner Training programme for Cardiac Physiology and Respiratory and Sleep Physiology.
The Bachelor of Science with Honours (BSc) Degree Apprenticeship which starts in September offers two routes of study depending on the Apprentice’s job role – Cardiac Physiology or Respiratory & Sleep Physiology. The programme will be delivered at the University’s City Campus in Wolverhampton over three years with Apprentices attending the University two days per week for the first two years then one day a week in the third year.
Jenny Tonkinson-Hoare, Senior Lecturer Practitioner (Cardiac Physiology) in the University’s Department of Biomedical Science & Physiology, said: “This exciting new work-based, innovative Degree Apprenticeship creates the opportunity for the apprentice to develop professionally and academically in order to graduate as a competent Healthcare Science Practitioner working within their chosen discipline.
“Employers can leverage the on-the-job skills of Apprentices to develop a stronger and more productive workforce in order to try and overcome the current national shortage of staff within Cardiac Physiology and Respiratory and Sleep Physiology.”
