What will the apprentice be doing?

  • Staff in this role work under the supervision of a registered practitioner (RGN) or may be supervised by a band 4 assistant practitioner. Supervision may be remote or indirect. They will have achieved the basic competencies of the Care Certificate but will need an induction to work as part of the practice nursing team or in community settings. This is the recommended level for HCAs working in primary care.
  • HCAs undertake responsibility for routine clinical and non-clinical duties as delegated by a registered practitioner, including defined clinical or therapeutic interventions within the limits of their competence. Their work is guided by standard operating procedures, protocols or systems of work but the worker is expected to exercise some autonomy within their delegated area of responsibility, to make non-complex decisions and report these back to assist in patient care evaluation and in broader service development and quality assurance activities.
  • They will be expected to answer simple patient queries and be flexible in supporting patients and the wider team.
  • They will be expected to demonstrate key behaviours consistent with the values identified for delivering compassionate care.
  • Level 3 HCAs may take a role in engaging with students and other health and social care staff to experience community settings.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

The proposed HEYH Apprenticeship training pathway allows development of HCAs to ensure that that they can demonstrate that they meet all the requirements of the Senior Healthcare Support Worker level 3 role by the end of their Apprenticeship (15- 18 months).

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

To be discussed on completion of apprenticeship.
