If you are interested in taking on an SLT apprentice in future but not sure where to start, take a look at the RCSLT’s new guidance for employers and universities.

This guidance will support you in thinking through the steps you need to take in developing a quality SLT apprenticeship. You can also download a template business case, which provides guidance and draft text on the key things to consider when planning to develop new apprenticeship pathways.

The RCSLT is supporting the development of a degree apprenticeship in speech and language therapy as a new route into the profession. Apprenticeships have the potential to extend the opportunity to become an SLT to a more diverse group of people who would not otherwise be able to follow the traditional route.

For more information about how to get involved, and the latest updates on progress, see our apprenticeship pages.
