Tuition fees: Fees will be paid from HEE to London Higher Education Institutions through the HEE Education Contract. For students at Higher Education Institutions outside London, funding will be directed through the relevant Regions Education Contract from 23-24. Please note where students have not been successful in applying for the full pathway, or wish to study something else, HEE is unable to guaranteed funding on these occasions.
Supervision fees: A £2,500 per annum, per trainee supervision fee is available for those on a full Advanced Practice MSc that is funded by HEE London. This offer is to support organisational costs of supporting an Advanced Practitioner with workplace-based supervision and assessment. For organisations who utilise the apprenticeship levy for funding of programme fees, HEE’s contribution to workplace supervision will be increased to £6,000. This is available for each new and continuing student undertaking a programme of study in the 2023/24 academic year and will be paid to employers after the named individual student has enrolled and started on programme. A data validation exercise will take place between Higher Education Institutions and HEE to confirm enrolled students have started on programme. Where a student expects their programme to be undertaken for a longer period than three years, the student and employer are advised to contact the faculty to discuss this further, as we cannot guarantee the payment of a supervision fee for longer than a three-year period.
Funding for single modules: Only academic level 7 top-up module requests for conversion of HEE-funded Post Graduate Diplomas (PGDip) to the full MSc will be funded by HEE London. Any requests for stand-alone modules that could complete established Advanced Practitioners’ mapping of capabilities against the domains of the Multi-Professional Framework for Advanced Practice would be directed to the national e-Portfolio (Supported) Route process to receive recognition by the Centre of Advancing Practice.
Continuing students: They will be reviewed separately through our monitoring process with HEIs, who will confirm which students are still on their programmes.
Speciality Advanced Practice Programmes: This funding is available where is it clearly demonstrated that the completion of a speciality MSc programme will meet a specific workforce need that cannot be met by current generic Advanced Practice pathways.
To provide this assurance, the employer, supported by the ICB, will be required to submit a business case outlining the workforce development plan, the speciality training need of the Advanced Practice workforce as well as outlines of job descriptions confirming the roles available to trainees on completion of their speciality programme that fully map to the domains of the Multi-professional Framework for Advanced Clinical Practice. The employer will also be required to attend one of the drop-in sessions that will be made available during the demand process, to discuss the request with the faculty.
