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 next cohort of students would start in autumn 2018. Any would-be apprentice needs to apply to BCU as soon as possible so that they can attend their selection days in August. 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
