Approval has been given to start work on creating a national standard for apprenticeships in diagnostic radiography.
This is an employer-led initiative which provides an opportunity to have an influence on the vision of a diagnostic radiographer, trained via the degree apprenticeship route.
Involvement includes employers, the Society of Radiographers, the Health and Care Professions Council, Skills for Health, and education partners.
We are now seeking representatives from stakeholder organisations throughout England to engage robustly and constructively in contributing to the vision of an Apprentice Diagnostic Radiographer.
The Diagnostic Radiography Degree Apprenticeship Trailblazer Meeting will take place on Thursday, 25 January 2018 at Queen Elizabeth University Hospital, Birmingham. Registratrion is 10am for a 10.30 start amnd the meeting is scheduled to finish by 3pm.
We need a good range of representatives to ensure the standard meets everyone’s future radiographer workforce needs.
Please indicate your interest by email with your contact details and suggestions of individuals who you believe can contribute to this work by 12 January.
