Course description

City and Guilds Dental Nursing Advanced Apprenticeship:

This course is for those who want to earn while you learn. On an apprenticeship you can: Gain training whilst you are employed and earning a wage; Achieve nationally recognised qualifications; Benefit from coaching and mentoring from industry professionals; Enhance your career prospects. We offer a structured training programme for those in employment who want to learn and we work with employers to recruit Apprentices seeking an Apprenticeship placement. If you don’t think you have the necessary ‘work-ready skills’, we also offer Traineeships. This course provides the essential work preparation training, English, Maths and work experience needed to secure your Apprenticeship place.

This programme usually lasts 24 months. The Dental Nurse role complements the role of other dental professionals. One of the primary roles is to provide chairside support to dental professionals and deliver a high level of patient care. Dental Nurses may work in a variety of clinical environments and the Apprenticeship reflects all aspects of clinical responsibilities and duties of a dental nurse’s role and will provide the Apprentice with the relevant qualification to apply to the General Dental Council (GDC) for professional registration as a Dental Nurse. Dental Nurses are registered professionals and work within the standards and scope of practice defined by the GDC Scope of Practice document (Sept 2013).

You will be required to have knowledge in the following areas: Dental and regional anatomy; Respiratory and circulatory systems; Health promotion and disease prevention; Transmission of infectious diseases and their prevention; You will need to have skills in: Health promotion; Clinical skills; Patient care; Patient management; Professionalism; Management skills. You will behave ethically, professionally and responsibly with commitment, and be self-reflective.

All learners will have a dedicated trainer/assessor who will plan learning and support you to the Gateway to End Point Assessment. You may be required to attend college and you will receive regular workplace assessments which will assess competency. You will be required to sit a number of exams during the programme in addition to creating a portfolio of learning. 20% of the training will be delivered off the job and this can include: Simulation, online learning or training from employers, shadowing, mentoring, industry visits, attendance at competitions and support in writing assignments. You will need to pass the GDC approved Licence to Practice Qualification and Functional Skills. You will then be independently assessed by a third party, linking and testing Dental Nursing skills and knowledge in a holistic way. The assessment will also include a face to face interview. On completion of this apprenticeship the apprentice can register with the General Dental Council as a qualified Dental Nurse and complete a range of Level 4 qualifications such as Oral Health.

Suitability - Who should attend?

You will need to be aged 16 years or over and must be working or applying to work with a company that have agreed that you will be working as an apprentice for this Apprenticeship programme. You will undertake a diagnostic assessment for both Maths and English and a free writing exercise prior to enrolment and will be at Level 1 for both subject areas. If you have passed Maths and English GCSE with a Grade A* to C (grade 4 or above) or functional key skills at Level 2, and can evidence this with certificate/s, you will not need to take the maths and English functional skills qualification within the apprenticeship programme.
