Lord Willis of Knaresborough – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department of Health

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Lord Willis of Knaresborough on 2016-03-17.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what consideration they have given to involving appropriate regulators in the development of degree-level apprenticeships for nursing and other allied health professionals.

Lord Prior of Brampton

Apprenticeship standards focus on the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to enable an apprentice to demonstrate mastery of an occupation and, as such, must meet professional registration requirements in sectors where these exist at the relevant level.

The Nursing and Midwifery Council are involved in the development of the Degree Nurse Apprenticeship Standard and will formally be invited to become a member of the Nursing Trailblazer Group.
