Programme Overview:

As a specialist NHS training provider The ATP was
recently commissioned by Salford Royal NHS Trust and
Southport & Ormskirk NHS Trust, to design apprenticeship
programmes that aid and support various roles within the
EPR team. Job titles include (but are not limited to);
• Clinical Systems Applications Specialist
• EPR Systems Manager
• EPR Systems Trainer
As part of the apprenticeship development process our
team interviewed and observed members of the EPR
team at Salford Royal NHS Trust in order to ensure the
apprenticeships were compatible with EPR roles and

The apprenticeships are offered at Level 3 and Level 4.
Embedded qualifications can include MTAs in networking
and programming; and we can also offer an ISTQB testing

The framework for the apprenticeship comprises of
two main qualifications; one competency based and
one knowledge based. There are also optional units.
The competency qualification must be assessed in the
workplace wherever possible; and it is recommended that
optional units should also be assessed in this context.
The knowledge qualification (or technical certificate)
will generally be taught in an off-the-job setting and
assessed using assignments/briefs and/or tests; in order
to ensure the apprentice has gained the underpinning
theory and principles required for the role. If “vendor”
units are selected; depending upon the industry, practical
assignments, tests and/or examinations will be led by the
industry standard and set by them.

Entry Requirements:
Individual employers will set the selection criteria, but this
might include five GCSEs and/or A levels; other relevant
qualifications and experience; or an aptitude test with a
focus on functional maths.
