This is a message to let you know that for people who are working in an Advanced Clinical Practice role in England, Health Education England will be re-opening the funded ePortfolio (supported) route again this Autumn.
Ahead of that happening, they want to gather information about likely numbers of people across the healthcare professions who will be looking to apply. For that reason, next week (5th September 2022) they will be asking for expressions of interest from people who'd like to apply for the funded ePortfolio route. They intend to accept expression for 4 weeks but that may close earlier depending on the numbers that they receive. They will require only limited information at this point along with confirmation from a manager that the person is working in an advanced practice role and will be supported to complete an ePortfolio. More information will be online via the centre for advanced practice ePortfolio (supported) Route - Advanced Practice (hee.nhs.uk)
If you are working with advanced practitioners in England who are not currently accredited by either the college of radiographers or the HEE centre for advancing practice, please do let them know about this.
