Advanced clinical practice is a rapidly expanding role across all areas in healthcare. This multi-professional Advanced Clinical Practice programme, offered by Teesside University, is developed around a national framework and the four capabilities of advanced clinical practice – clinical, research, education and leadership.


This Advanced Clinical Practice programme, offered by Teesside University, is also available as a degree apprenticeship. This course enables you to develop your personal and professional autonomy, providing you with a comprehensive and critical understanding of professional practice, ensuring that you are fit for future challenges within health and social care.

The course is flexible for multi-professional individuals from all areas of advanced practice within acute and primary care sectors – you access the same core modules. The negotiated competencies within the first-year portfolio module allow you the flexibility to ensure maximum relevance and application to your clinical area. 

You have the opportunity to develop advanced and core transferable skills relevant to your area of practice – you develop your advanced clinical decision-making skills, using evidence-based approaches to care, lead innovation and practice, and develop high levels of autonomy. The course is developed in partnership with key stakeholders from practice and delivered by an experienced team with knowledge and academic credibility both within and outside of the University. 

This multi-professional team has a wealth of experience in developing and delivering modules of this nature for healthcare professions at all academic levels. You study this course on a part-time basis over three years. You are supported through your studies by an academic supervisor and you also need to identify a practice supervisor. To access the apprenticeship route you must be working in a healthcare setting with relevant registration and be sponsored by your organisation.
