NCL – Trainee Nursing Associate Cohort March 2022

We are again taking applications for Trainee Nursing Associates programme for the March 2022 cohort.

The TNAs can be your current HCSW or non-clinical team member wishing to develop or if you don’t have a current interested member of staff we can assist with recruiting externally.

There will be financial support for practices to train the TNAs (you must provide dedicated nurse supervision time and allow the nurse supervisor to attend training and the trainees to attend monthly learning sets which will be roughly 8k per TNA available to claim against)

You may be aware that the role is now included in the PCN additional roles reimbursement scheme (ARRS) so your PCN may want to upskill or recruit.

However, we are very happy to take applications from individual practices too.

Please do note that the entry criteria to the programme is:

  • English and Maths functional skills level 2 which is equivalent to

GCSE grades C-A (grades 4-9)

A level or AS level grade E or above

Level grade C or above

CSE grade 1 English (language)

  • Have lived in the UK for the past 3 years
  • Willingness to be employed Full time, 37.5hrs per week

If you have a current member of staff who would like to undertake this apprenticeship but does not meet the entry requirements please do get in touch as I can arrange for them to obtain these qualifications (functional skills) with a view to applying to the TNA apprenticeship at a later date.

If you are keen to develop your HCA or non-clinical team member for the March 2022 cohort and would like to put them forward to apply, please do let me know by Friday 3rd December 2021 by replying to this email.

 If you would like a TNA externally recruited for your PCN or practice, please let me know.
