A Guide to Applying for HEE Funding for ACP training in Primary Care (SY&B area)

The application process for 21/22 has now officially closed and we are no longer taking applications from organisations for course start dates of Sept 21 and Jan 22. 

In response to the rising demand for the development of Advanced Clinical  Practitioners (ACPs) Health Education England North East and Yorkshire has increased the number of trainee ACP posts that they are able to support in primary care.

The ACP Scheme, which is being prioritised as an apprenticeship route, is open to practice nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals (such as paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists etc.) who wish to develop into ACP roles in primary care. Applications must be made by employing organisations that have an ACP role for the individual to move into at the end of their training.

In addition to a £10,000 per year training grant (21/22 financial year) and funding for course fees, the ACP Scheme offers additional support for education and training, including local support for trainee ACPs and clinical supervisors from the SY&B Faculty for Advanced Practice.
