Rehabilitation Worker (Visual Impairment) Apprenticeship ST043

Over 20 Years’ Experience

Our team have been involved in the training of Rehabilitation Workers for over 23 years. We have used our extensive experience of university and independent training to develop a New apprenticeship training programme that uses modern learning methods to deliver training that suits employee and employer’s needs.

Course Content

The Rehabilitation Worker (Visual Impairment) apprenticeship, ST0431 is a ground-breaking standard developed by employers (a first in the UK), to provide a detailed description of what an employer requires of a practicing Rehabilitation Worker. This apprenticeship training programme strictly adheres to the content of the apprenticeship standard and in doing so ensures that the apprentice develops the Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours their employer requires. Details of the apprenticeship standard and its content can be found at:


Multiple Start Dates

We have 3 options throughout the year. 

  • Summer - May/June - Enrolment as of 1st February 

  • Autumn - September/October  - Enrolment as of 1st June

  • Winter - January/February - Enrolment as of 1st November - for employers with 8+ Apprentices



Course delivery

  • All training staff are qualified and practicing Rehabilitation Workers and/or have lived experience of visual impairment. They bring the variety and reality of their day-to-day experience to their training sessions

  • The course duration is 24 months (based on standard full-time employed apprentices)

  • Based on a standard employment contract of 35 hours a week an apprentice will have 7 hours per week allocated to Off-The-Job training

  • We have a bespoke online training platform for the apprentice to access their learning and to store all their work

  • Utilising a tried and tested 'Active Learning' methodology, apprentices develop the practice skills they need to function as a proactive member of the team

  • The apprentice is guided through the programme with weekly worksheets that develop their knowledge, skills, and behaviours

  • Learning from the COVID-19 pandemic and to counter any future disruptions we have embraced Video Conferencing and online learning to deliver classroom training

  • Focussed face-to-face training in London to maximise the practical time spent together no prolonged periods away from the workplace

  • A unique Multiple Mentorship approach enables us to relive the burden of supervision but still ensure the apprentice has the experiences and support they need

  • A detailed Managers Brief outlines the content and activities of each module. This handy document supports managers to keep-up-dated on their apprentices performance

  • Investing in Apprentices, we provide all the online and printed literature the apprentice requires to complete their training


In Work Training

Apprentices are required to complete a range of activities that are common to the role of the Rehabilitation Worker. These placement style activities are distributed across the 24 months and ensure the apprentice develops the professional practice skills they require.
