We are excited to be offering the BSC (Hons) Operating Department Practitioner Apprentice course.

The Operating Department Practitioner (ODP) Apprenticeship is a new and innovative route to acquire the knowledge, skills and behaviours across different areas of perioperative care.

The ODP degree apprentice programme can be accessed from a range of health care settings and is an ideal opportunity to undertake work based experiential and reflective learning whilst being employed. Throughout your 3-year degree you will study alongside other student ODP's on their BSc (Hons) Operating Department Practitioner programme. You will work and be assessed in a variety of specialist areas such as general surgery, orthopaedic surgery, ear, nose and throat, obstetric surgery, anaesthetic and post-anaesthetic care (recovery).

You will be expected to travel between the Trust sites to gain experience in a variety of specialisms.

At the end of the programme you will be required to apply for HCPC Registration in order to practice as an Operating Department Practitioner.

Please note during the 3 year course you will be paid at a percentage of a Band 5 rate (Annex 21).

The hub placement for this apprenticeship will be the Lincoln site.
