Who is this Standard for?
This apprenticeship is for individuals working within a healthcare environment. Healthcare support workers work as part of a team providing high quality and compassionate care to individuals. They carry out well-defined routine clinical duties like monitoring an individual’s conditions (by checking things like blood pressure, temperature or weight), checking on their overall progress, comfort and wellbeing. They prepare individuals for healthcare activities carried out by other members of the healthcare team and look after them before, during and/or after those activities in line with their care plan. Healthcare Support Workers work in a range of healthcare settings and their team may include workers from both health and social care.
This is a level 2 apprenticeship standard that has a minimum duration of 12 months. Apprentices will be placed in healthcare role and supported by a tutor to achieve the Healthcare Support Worker standards, as well as Level 1 maths and English qualifications.
