About the programme

The programme is made up of two sessions, each taking around 45 minutes to complete with additional activities and resources available for learners.

Primary and secondary audiences

The aim of the two sessions is to provide allied health professionals (AHPs) in their late career with information so they can consider the that are available to them, rather than leaving the NHS completely.  The resources are also suitable for individuals who have already retired and who may no longer be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council.

To grow and deliver an AHP workforce that meets the ambitions set out in the NHS People Plan and Long Term Plan, it is essential we harness the knowledge and skills of our late career AHPs and provide the opportunity for individuals to leave their legacy.

More information

This resource is supported by a quick reference guide available on the Health Education England website:

Quick reference guide link

Together with the quick guide, this programme will provide practical support to encourage and enable individuals to consider a change in role to support learners rather than leaving the NHS altogether; thus, retaining knowledge and skills to support the development of the future workforce. The quick guide is aimed at employers, education providers and individuals in their later career to provide guiding principles to operationalise this model.  The guide includes links to two case studies showing examples where AHPs in their late careers have supported learners in practice-based learning.
