Level 5 Healthcare Assistant Practitioner 

Assistant Practitioners work as part of the wider health and social care team and have direct contact with patients, service users or clients providing high quality and compassionate care. Assistant Practitioners can be found working in a range of areas, for example within cancer services, physiotherapy, orthopaedics, hospice care and mental health settings.

Assistant Practitioners work at a level above that of Healthcare Support Workers and have a more in-depth understanding about factors that influence health and ill-health (eg anatomy and physiology).

Apprentices undertaking this programme with Hoople will work towards a Level 5 Diploma for Assistant Practitioners in Healthcare. To be eligible, you must be in a job role where you are assisting a health practitioner, for example assisting a nurse, physiotherapist or occupational therapist.
