Physiotherapist apprenticeship

Deliver programmes and interventions to help people affected by injury, ageing, illness or disability

As a physiotherapist apprentice, you’ll join a science-based profession focused on improving individuals’ health across diverse settings. Working with patients of all ages, you’ll address injuries, illnesses, and disabilities using physical and psychological treatments like exercise and manual therapy. During the physiotherapist apprenticeship, you’ll work towards leading programmes to improve patients’ mobility, function, and quality of life, while offering education and advice on health and wellness. You’ll empower patients to manage their pain and make positive lifestyle changes, promoting independence and addressing health inequalities. Collaborating within multidisciplinary teams, you’ll provide care directly to patients and play a key role in educating healthcare professionals and the public. The physiotherapist apprenticeship could be done in a range of large or small organisations and across numerous sectors: in public, private, and charity sectors; across physical health, mental health, forensic, and prison settings.
