Radiation Physics Clinical Technologist Apprenticeship

Do you have an interest in the application of science and technology in healthcare? Do you possess good interpersonal and analytical skills? Would you like to pursue a well-paid career with good prospects helping the NHS serve patients on a daily basis? Want to earn a salary while you train? If so, this could be the position for you.

We're pleased to announce this rare and exciting opportunity to join our friendly, dedicated Clinical & Radiation Physics team as an apprentice Clinical Technologist.

This is an exciting time to join the team due to a recent restructure and the development of collaborative working across the South, East and North Devon Medical Physics network (SEND Medical Physics), which includes the Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust and North Devon Healthcare NHS Trust. The position will involve work across all three Trusts, and the post holder may be placed in any of the three main locations.

Clinical & Radiation Physics provides scientific support services to users of ionising radiations including X-Ray, CT, and Nuclear Medicine, as well as non-ionising radiations such as UV and Ultrasound. Alongside your studies you could be working on testing x-ray equipment performance one day, carrying out a radiation safety assessment the next day and calibrating equipment used for UV treatments on another.

Applicants should be numerate, computer literate and must meet the entry requirements for the degree course at the University of West of England in Bristol. This currently requires 128 UCAS points from A level (ABB, including at least one relevant science from Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths or Physiology), + Maths and English GCSE Grade C (4) or equivalent’. Alternative qualifications may accepted, subject to the UWE admissions process. Applications may be considered from candidates with a lower UCAS points score who can demonstrate a particular aptitude for the role.

You will undertake a fully funded, professionally accredited BSc (Hons) Degree qualification in Healthcare Science (Medical Physics Technology) specialising in Radiation Physics. Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship you will be eligible for entry on the professional register for clinical technologists (RCT). There may be an opportunity to join the department permanently at the end of your training but in any case, your new-found skills as a clinical technologist will be in high demand as there is a national shortage of trained staff.  This post will be commencing September 2021.

Salary will be paid at agenda for change band 2 in year 1, band 3 in year 2 and band 4 in year 3.

“At the moment, my role is similar to working in a private vet’s practice. It’s very clinical and hands on, with animals always coming in. In my next posting I’ll be working in a preventative role, training dog handlers in caring for the dogs and doing first aid. It will be a different focus and tempo!”
