Members will be aware that there is a sonographer apprenticeship trailblazer group currently developing an apprenticeship route leading to qualification as a sonographer.
As part of its development there are two mandatory consultations. One is on the Standard and the other is on the End Point Assessment (EPA).
The following are details of the EPA consultation, the Standard having now been approved following an earlier consultation.
The consultations are organised by the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education.
SCoR members are being encouraged to take part in the consultation to help develop an EPA that meets training needs and ensure new apprenticeships are viable, high quality and widely supported.
EPA proposals included in the draft proposal include:
The closing date for submissions is March 4.
You can read the proposal in full and take part in the survey by heading to instituteforapprenticeships.org and scrolling down to ‘EPA Stage’ and looking for ‘Sonographer’.
