As you will all be aware, we are currently in the process of developing an apprenticeship standard for a Rehabilitation Worker (Visual Impairment). This standard is being developed as part of the government’s Trailblazer initiative to create more employer-led apprenticeships. During the summer the expression of interest was approved and we are now seeking comment on the apprenticeship standard drafted by the employer group before it is submitted in January.
The employer group is made up of providers of visual rehabilitation services from across the public, private and voluntary sector and feels that the standard reflects the needs of all employers
This standard will be a level 5 apprenticeship and it has been decided by the employer group that the current Foundation Degree in Rehabilitation Work (Visual Impairment) will be strongly recommended for the external training component of the apprenticeship but not specified as a mandatory qualification.
Please find the draft standard attached below.
If you have any comments please could you send them to email@example.com by Friday 6th January 2017.
We will endeavor to keep everyone up to date with any progress regarding this exciting proposal.
