PTP BSc(Hons) Curricula including work-based learning guides

The PTP curricula have been revised in 2016. It is anticipated that trainees entering the training programme from Autumn 2017 will follow those versions of the curricula.

The most up-to-date versions of the PTP curricula are published on the National School of Healthcare Science’s website: http://www.nshcs.hee.nhs.uk/curricula

The revisions include:

  • The Introduction to the curricula now explains how the PTP will support the delivery of the Degree Apprenticeship Standard for Healthcare Science Practitioners (HCSPs) and clarifies the position of the End-Point Assessment (EPA) for apprenticeships
  • The update of the scientific, technical and professional content of the curricula
  • The PTP curricula are now presented as a single document embedding the work-based Learning Guides, thereby producing a single document for each of the curricula
  • Appendix 2 outlines the amendments since first publication; the revised curricula are published as version 1.0 2016. 


Below are links to the archive versions of the PTP BSc(Hons) Curricula including work-based learning guides for BSc (Hons) Healthcare Science for Life Sciences, Physiological Sciences and Physical Sciences and Biomedical Engineering (updated Jul 2015).
