Health Education England is committed to recruiting the best person for the job, based solely on their ability and individual merit as measured against the criteria for the role; through a process that is fair, open, consistent and free from discrimination. Health Education England supports the values and pledges of the NHS Constitution.

We are committed to being a diverse and an inclusive employer and will build a culture where all employees are valued, respected and acknowledged. We strive to ensure that no individual receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of their gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, colour, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, pregnancy and maternity, marital or civil partnership status, transgender status, HIV status, social background, trade union membership or non-membership and is placed at a disadvantage by requirements or conditions that cannot be shown to be justifiable.


Do you have experience in educational assessment, and an interest in managing the delivery of a suite of end-point assessments (EPA) for apprenticeships in Healthcare Science for the National School of Healthcare Science and healthcare scientists in the UK?

Hosted by Health Education England, the National School of Healthcare Science (NSHCS) works with education providers and employers across the UK to oversee the delivery of all training programmes developed for scientists working in healthcare at all levels.

This is a new, senior post at the NSHCS responsible for supporting the Head of Assessment and the Training Programme Director for Undergraduate Courses and Apprenticeships for the delivery of the end-point assessment (EPA) for apprenticeships in healthcare science. The aim of the EPA is to ensure an apprentice has met the published standard for the vocational role in which they are trained. The provision of the EPA is a cost-recoverable activity for the NSHCS and Health Education England (HEE), in that NHS and private healthcare employers will be charged for each assessment.

This will be a challenging and rewarding role as the post holder will work to influence and help shape the ongoing delivery and review of EPAs within all healthcare science training programmes; develop resources to support both the training providers and apprentices; ensure an effective service is provided and grow the business by looking for more opportunities as an EPA organisation. 

The post holder will also use their knowledge of education and assessment to input to the School's assessment strategies for all levels of training programmes which will add interest and challenge to the role. 

Educated to master's level or equivalent with sound knowledge of education and assessment principles, the successful candidate will bring enthusiasm, drive and commitment to help to deliver and grow the EPA assessment agenda within the NSHCS.

The NSHCS is based in Birmingham but there will be a requirement to travel and stay at venues nationally so the post holder should expect to work flexibly as required.
