*Scheme* – ACP Ready

Offers support and funding for practices to employ and train an ACP over their first two years whilst working towards completing the MSc in Advanced Clinical Practice, mainly via the apprenticeship route.

Suitable for Registered Nurses or Allied Health Professionals such as Paramedics, Physiotherapists and Pharmacists developing advanced clinical roles in primary care.

Includes regular group peer-support/ learning sessions.


When is it available?

The HCV Faculty are now welcoming applications for ACP trainee funded places for courses in September 2022 and January 2023. Open to nurses and AHPs wanting to develop their role and complete the ACP MSc programme. Further details on how employers are able to apply can be found here. The application window is open until 25th March 2022.


How long is it?

3 year apprenticeship (Year 1 & 2 involve weekly teaching, Year 3 involves a dissertation)


What’s involved?

The scheme is open to the full variety of roles which practices may choose to develop into an ACP, examples include:

  • Registered Nurses developing into an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP)
  • Paramedics
  • Physiotherapists
  • Pharmacists


Practices who wish to support their staff to undertake a University ACP Masters programme should give careful consideration to how they will supervise and support their staff member as they complete the clinical element of these programmes; putting key learning into practice and moving into new ACP roles with the practice upon completion of their studies. Practices taking part in the scheme will develop an educational plan for the new ACP and have a named appropriate supervisor within the practice.
