Occupational Therapist Degree Apprenticeship
Apprentices engage with university study two days per week, 32 weeks per year. Within those weeks they also complete between six and eight weeks of full-time practice placement in a setting outside of their workplace.
This contributes to the minimum of 20% of paid working hours which must be spent on studies and evidenced (off-the-job learning). This is a statutory requirement for apprenticeships and the funding is conditional on this being met.
The standards of Occupational Therapy Integrated Degree, that are set by the institute for apprenticeships and must be met by students and work places can be accessed here.
