Abstract Introduction
In 2017, PHE facilitated a workshop to determine employer demand for the development of apprenticeship standards for public health roles. The outcome was the development of a public health practitioner (PHP) level 6 (integrated degree) apprenticeship standard.PHPs are part of the core public health workforce. PHPs focus on health at a community or population level, assessing and managing risk of disease and ill-health, and the prevention of premature deaths. PHPs are employed in local councils; PHE; NHS Trusts; and private, voluntary and community sectors.The standard supports the development of an adaptable practitioner workforce across the system, building resilience for the future.MethodA trailblazer group of over 40 employers and universities developed the standard with the support from Health Education England, Skills for Health and the Institute for Apprenticeships and Technical Education (the Institute).The Public Health Skills and Knowledge Framework (2016) underpinned the standard to ensure that apprentices develop the full breath of skills, knowledge and behaviours for public health practice.ResultThe standard was approved in November 2018 by the Institute and is now being finalised for delivery: completion, the apprentice is eligible for professional registration with the UK Public Health Register (UKPHR).Further workCollaborating with UK-wide employers, PHE are exploring the development of a level 3/4 standard for community-centred roles. A level 7 Health and Care Intelligence Specialist standard is also currently in development to support public health careers.
