Good foot health and improved mobility can enable independence and improve quality of life for everyone. Podiatry management for people with foot and lower limb complaints can help support health and well-being across a range of health and social care arenas, including older people, those with long term conditions as well as in terms of broader public health. The Podiatrist Apprenticeship Degree prepares apprentices for professional practice and lifelong learning.
The course is contemporary in its content, having considered the current health agenda and ensures that apprentices are fit for practice upon graduation and fit for award. The teaching and learning strategies are innovative and learners engage with a wide range of partners in a collaborative learning experience whilst also gaining valuable workplace experience.
The apprenticeship course has been designed as a route through the existing successful BSc (Hons) Podiatry degree programme. This is a 3 year full-time course that is delivered at our Eastbourne campus. The experience of the course for apprentices will be very similar to that of other students, but with a few key differences. Apprentices are seconded to the course by their employer and will therefore be able to take advantage of opportunities for work-based learning within their own workplace and will usually receive their clinical practice placement through their employer's organisation.
Potential apprentices must be employed in a healthcare setting before applying for this apprenticeship. Be sure to read our full guidance page before applying for this apprenticeship.
Employers would need to ensure their employees had a current Disclosure and Barring Service check, and were cleared through an Occupational Health Screening, prior to commencement of the course.
