The application process for 22/23 officially opened on Monday 17th January 2022 and is now taking applications from organisations for Masters ACP course start dates for September 2022 and January 2023.
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 Commissioning Round 22-23, which is being prioritised as a Level 7 Apprenticeship route, is open to practice nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals (e.g. paramedics, physiotherapists, podiatrists, OTs etc.) who wish to develop into ACP roles in primary care. Applications must be made by employing organisations that are committed to supporting their trainee ACPs and have an ACP role for them to move into at the end of their training period.
In addition to a training grant* and full funding for course fees through apprenticeship levy/ HEE 5% contribution, the HEE offer for South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw includes additional support for education and training, including local support for trainee ACPs and clinical supervisors from the SY&B Faculty for Advanced Practice.
*Training grant amount for 22-23 TBC, for 21-22 this was £10,000 per individual, per year up to 3 years max (£30,000.) Training grant not available for dissertation only.
ACP APPRENTICESHIP ROUTE (PRiority)
There is also a Fees Funded route for applicants who do not meet apprenticeship eligibility criteria (e.g. requiring ‘top up’ funding for modules of less than 1.5 years duration.)
Further details can be found in the ACP Commissioning Round 22/23 guidance document (see below.)
The deadline for applications is 11th March 2022 and successful applicants will be notified by w/c 6th April 2022. Applications must be submitted along with a trainee ACP job description.
