Education and employment

Support different entry routes into AHP roles and explore potential alternatives to optimise the position of the profession to contribute to 21st-century workforce


Allied Health Professionals Careers in academia and leadership

screen grab from career routes page In collaboration with the University of the West of England we have designed a roadmap to encourage AHPs and student AHPs to think more strategically about career planning and to consider the wider horizon of potential career directions in academia. The resource provides more information about the educator role and describes some of the available career pathways for those entering this branch of the AHP profession. You’ll hear from AHPs at different stages of their journey in academia, from students to senior leaders, as they share insights and practical advice based on their own personal career trajectories. You can click the info icon next to a speaker at any time to see a short biography. Access the resource.

Apprenticeships are a key Government and HEE priority. With the introduction of the Apprenticeship Levy and Reforms in 2017. Specifically, HEE has been mandated to contribute to the development of apprenticeship standards in health and to date has worked with colleagues at the Institute for Apprenticeships and Skills for Health, as well as Trailblazer Chairs to develop over 80 health specific apprenticeship qualifications – including 12 AHP degree and masters level apprenticeships for employers and students to use.
