Public Health England Consultation: Public Health Apprenticeships

PHE held a workshop in March 2019 to explore employer demand for a level 3 apprenticeship standard to support the training and development of community-centred roles (eg social prescribing link workers, community connectors, health trainers, care or service navigators, and other similar roles). Details of are available in the workshop report

One of the recommendations from this workshop was to better understand the duties, capabilities and current training opportunities for this workforce through consultation with employers and front-line workers.

This consultation will establish employer need for, and commitment to, an apprenticeship standard to underpin an Occupational Proposal to the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.

Please respond to the consultation online before 17:00 hrs on Friday 1 November.
