Applicants must be employed, in an appropriate role, and at an appropriate level, in a levy – paying institution. Individual employers will set the selection criteria for their Apprenticeships. In addition applicants require:
GCSE Maths and English at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent)
- Level 3 health/social care qualification (or equivalent)
If applicants do not have the required qualifications they can complete the LLC Alternative Entry Scheme. However, if they do not already hold these qualifications, Apprentices must also achieve, level 2 English and maths prior to taking their end-point assessment.
Apprentices must meet the eligibility criteria specified in the EFSA funding rules. The minimum duration of each apprenticeship is based on the apprentice working 30 hours a week or more, including any off-the-job training they undertake. If the apprentice works fewer than 30 hours a week it may be possible to extend the minimum duration (pro rata) to take account of this. This will need to be done in consultation with the University, the employer and the applicant.

The programme has been developed with reference to the Subject Benchmark Statement for Nursing (2001). It is also designed to ensure that level 1 maps onto outcomes for the first year of the nursing degree such that, with the addition of a bridging module, students have met required level 1 outcomes for progression to level 2 of that degree and written to comply with curriculum stipulated by HEE.
The Foundation Degree Nursing Associate (Apprenticeship) is a two year full-time programme. The apprenticeship combines and integrates both academic and work-based learning. It is designed for those who are working in trainee nursing associate roles. The professional experience of students and their ongoing clinical experience are key elements of the programme. In each module, theoretical learning will be grounded and critically examined in relation to clinical practice and there is opportunity to focus and apply this to a range of settings and roles.
The fees for this programme are covered by the employer through the apprenticeship levy.
This course is delivered under the apprenticeship model. The Foundation Degree is awarded by the University of Leeds, after which an end point assessment will be required by your employer to achieve the apprenticeship.
