You should be employed at NHS Agenda for Change Band 2 or 3 as a healthcare support worker (or equivalent). At the point of entry onto the course, you should be working in areas of adult, maternity, perioperative or children and young people's care.
You will need to have agreed with your employer that you can attend one day of study release each week throughout the course. Employers usually pay a student's course fees.
During the selection process, you will need to sit a numeracy and literacy test (equivalent to Level 2). This is followed by a face-to-face interview.
