Apprenticeships in England

The RCSLT is actively supporting the development of apprenticeships, as they relate to speech and language therapy. Read our position statement.
Read more information from the Institute for Apprenticeships about the process for the development of apprenticeships.

On 17th July we were delighted to be joined by 50 speech and language therapists, Skills for Health and the Institute for Apprenticeships at our joint RCSLT and 2gether NHS Trust workshop on the development of an SLT apprenticeship.

The presentations from the event are available here.

The newly formed Trailblazer Group has worked on and submitted a proposal, a so called “expression of interest (EoI)”, to the Institute for Apprenticeships to develop a degree standard apprenticeship for speech and language therapy. This is the first formal step and, when it has been approved, work can then start on developing the standard itself.
