Physiotherapist apprenticeship

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

Physiotherapists lead and deliver programmes and interventions to help people affected by injury, ageing, illness or disability. During the physiotherapist apprenticeship, you’ll use a range of physical and psychological treatment approaches, including movement, exercise and manual therapy, to optimise an individual’s mobility, function and quality of life. You’ll also provide education about health and wellbeing and provide specific advice that can be applied to everyday activities to manage and reduce the risk of pain or injury. The profession helps to encourage development and facilitate recovery, enabling people to remain independent for as long as possible. As a physiotherapist, you’ll practise as an autonomous, independent practitioner, while contributing strongly to team-working. Individuals are able to seek care directly from you and without referral from another professional. You’ll work with people who may present with complex and challenging problems resulting from multiple illnesses, injury or disability. In addition to providing physiotherapy interventions, you’ll play a substantial educational, health coaching and advisory role to patients, other healthcare professionals and the public. On completion, you’ll achieve a bachelor’s degree in physiotherapy.
