Occupational therapist apprenticeship

Enable people to participate in meaningful occupations and activities of everyday life

An occupational therapist works with individuals with physical and mental health conditions, injury, learning disabilities, long-term conditions, palliative care needs, and those who find themselves displaced from their societies. Your primary goal as an occupational therapist is to enable people to participate in meaningful occupations and activities of everyday life. Occupations include things people need to, want to and are expected to do, such as self-care, leisure or work. You’ll enable people who face disease, disability and social challenges to live a more fulfilling and meaningful life. You’ll use skills in clinical reasoning, critical analysis, and research-based evidence in your practice. You’ll use a person-centred approach to support people to carry out everyday occupations and routines such as dressing, eating, catching the bus to work or other activities that are important to them. Occupational therapists also work with families, carers, employers and organisations that support the person. On completion of the occupational therapist apprenticeship, you’ll achieve a bachelor’s degree in occupational therapy.
