Specialist in the lower limbs, providing high-quality clinical care to people of all ages

Podiatrists, also known as chiropodists, work to protect people’s feet. As a podiatrist apprentice, you’ll provide preventative advice, care, assessment, diagnosis and treatment of a range of problems affecting the feet, ankles and legs. During the podiatrist apprenticeship, you’ll work to reduce the impact of disability and dysfunction and have a role in rehabilitation. You’ll play a key part in reducing the risk of amputation, infection, pain, deformity and hospital admissions. You’ll train in a range of podiatry interventions, including wound care, routine skin and nail care, nail surgery, scalpel work, and care for long-term conditions. You’ll provide musculoskeletal assessment and then instigate a treatment plan to improve or enhance movement or reduce pain. You’ll also prescribe functional insoles for the management of conditions. On completion of this apprenticeship, you’ll achieve a degree in podiatry.
