For the first time ever, The National Examining Board for Dental Nurses (NEBDN) offers an Apprenticeship to Providers alongside an End-Point Assessment (EPA) for Employers! This exciting launch follows on from the Lancashire based Charity receiving Ofqual recognition earlier this year.  

Joining a list of over 178 Ofqual recognised institutions, NEBDN sits on the register as a regulated Awarding Organisation. Their new Apprenticeship product will provide two types of training routes to qualification and General Dental Council registration; the Apprenticeship as one 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 personally fund their course. 

Kate Kerslake, CEO at NEBDN, comments: “This is a huge achievement for NEBDN and gives us an opportunity to not only enter a new market in education but expand as a business and achieve our vision to offer a Dental Nursing Apprenticeship. I am so pleased to see this product launch, as this will allow us to give Employers a choice of training routes for their Trainee Dental Nurses, which is something we know is important to offer as an inclusive organisation.” 

NEBDN will continue with developments to ensure it supports career development and wider opportunities for Dental Nurses across the profession. The organisation continues to operate their Diploma and Post-Registration qualifications, celebrating 80 years in business this October.
