Occupational therapist apprenticeship

Help people to be independent and meaningfully engage in daily activities 

Occupational therapists operate in diverse settings such as healthcare, social care, and education. During an occupational therapist apprenticeship, you’ll assist individuals of all ages, including those with physical or mental health issues, injuries, learning disabilities, or palliative care needs, as well as those facing social exclusion. As an occupational therapist apprentice, you’ll learn to help individuals engage in meaningful everyday activities (known as occupations), like dressing, eating, or commuting. Using a holistic approach and evidence-based methods, you will support clients in achieving their occupational goals. You might work independently or as part of a team, conducting assessments, interventions, and critical reflections to address clients’ needs. You will need to continuously update your skills and knowledge to make sure you’re delivery a high-quality service. Additionally, you will provide leadership and mentorship to students and colleagues, contributing to the advancement of the profession.
