Course Summary

As a health care practitioner our MSc Advanced Clinical Practitioner programme will set you up to lead and develop your practice. You’ll learn how to work innovatively and to a high autonomous level combining the four pillars of Advanced Clinical Practice.

You’ll meet Health Education England (2017) descriptors for an Advanced Clinical Practitioner.

These include managing clinical care in partnership with individuals, families and carers and analysing and synthesising complex problems across a range of settings.

Why study with us

  • You’ll access outstanding facilities used by local and professional sports teams and elite athletes - from Preston North End FC, Wigan Warriors RFC and Preston Harriers, to Oceania (2012 Olympics), and the Rugby League World Cup 2013 Ireland team.
  • You’ll also discover how to enable innovative solutions to enhance people’s experience and improve outcomes.
  • And you’ll develop evidence-based knowledge, skills and person-centred values to prepare you for a rewarding career.

Learning and end point assessment

All apprentices sit an independent end-point assessment (EPA), assessing all the knowledge, skills and behaviours you’ve learnt throughout your apprenticeship.

It’s taken at the very end of the on-programme phase of training when your employer, or in some cases your training provider, is satisfied that you meet the “gateway” criteria to take the assessment.
