The University of Salford has been awarded the contract to provide the Registered Nurse Degree Apprenticeship (RNDA) by Health Education England (HEE), and is looking to engage with employers to establish their needs and gauge their interest.

To do this, the university will be holding an event in January where employers are invited to discuss the apprenticeship and the accelerated pathway, for Assistant Practitioners and Nursing Associates, across all four fields of nursing practice (mental health, adult, children, learning disability).

Dr Janine Archer (pictured), Head of Apprenticeships for the School of Health & Society at the university, said: “We’re planning our delivery of the BSc (Hons) Nursing RNDA and are looking to engage employers in order to help us ensure that any proposed delivery meets their organisational requirements. Employer involvement is crucial as it helps us to work in partnership to address local workforce issues.”

The event is open to employers from a wide range of health and social care organisations who are interested in offering the RNDA to their existing and future employees.

It will take place on Tuesday 12 January 2021, from 12.00pm – 2.00pm.
