The Institute for Apprenticeships has approved the Rehabilitation Worker standard ST0 431. The single biggest boost to regenerating the workforce for England is now in place. Here is the link to the standard.
Currently the only provider of the two year training course is Birmingham City University (BCU). The first cohort of students started in September 2018. The next intake will be in September 2019. It is not too early to be thinking about how employers can access their levy and identify potential apprentices. BCU have written an excellent guide to the whole process of applying for levy funds and the BCU application process. The Rehab Work apprenticeship - E-leaflet for employers (1).docx
RWPN has been approved by the Education and Skills Funding Agency as an End Point Assessor Organisation (EPAO) for this standard. A description of the End Point Assessment will appear on this website later this year and practice materials will be made available by April 2019. RWPN's unique identifier as an EPAO is EPA0167.
