What is the NEBDN Integrated Apprenticeship?
NEBDN provide a range of qualifications to support the development of Dental Nurses within the clinical setting, including the NEBDN Level 3 Diploma in Dental Nursing (integrated Apprenticeship) (RQF). As per the requirements of the Dental Nurse Assessment Plan AP05, End-Point Assessment for the Apprenticeship is integrated into the qualification. This means that in order to achieve the qualification and Apprenticeship, the Learner must pass assessments that meet both the on-programme and End-Point Assessment (EPA) requirements of the qualification.
NEBDN offering an Apprenticeship product provides two types of training routes to qualification and General Dental Council registration, the Apprenticeship as one product and the National Diploma as the other. Through government Apprenticeship funding, Employers can now offer a fully funded training package, removing the need for trainees to financially contribute to their course.
