A quick guide to the Bridging Programme

How to put the Bridging Programme in place

Skills for Health has worked with HEE support to establish the Bridging Programme in England and has done so successfully, with HEIs across England committed to considering Bridging Programme applicants.

New uses for the Bridging Programme have emerged since we began the project - helping Healthcare workers prepare for entry to Nursing Associate training or to Nursing and other registered health professional Apprenticeships. As more people progress directly from the healthcare workplace to higher level training in HE, more will need Bridging Programme skills to succeed.
