CRC set to unveil new Wellbeing & Holistic Therapy Apprenticeship

CRC is to launch a new Wellbeing & Holistic Therapy Apprenticeship programme this month. The offering, a new Apprenticeship Standard, is aimed at those who work in environments that are designed to encourage wellbeing and relaxation and will offer Apprentices the chance to create tailored holistic and wellbeing experiences in a variety of settings.

The Apprenticeship Standard will help learners’ complete treatments and wellbeing experiences with holistic therapy principles, theories, and applications to calm or stimulate the sensory experiences for the body and mind. On completion of the programme, learners will leave with a Level 3 Standard in Wellbeing and Holistic Therapy Apprenticeship and have the skills necessary to work in the industry as a professional therapist.

Lucy Kaye, Work-Based Learning Manager, said “We are so pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with employers on this new Standard. We have seen an increased focus on mental, physical, and emotional wellbeing and this new Standard enables us to use the services our employers offer and build on skills their teams need to possess. The specialised professional training from teachers and employers will ensure Apprentices gain the appropriate knowledge and abilities to achieve their Standard with the clear objective of becoming accomplished and successful therapists.” 

Apprentices will cover specific treatments such as aromatherapy, acupressure, holistic massage, Indian head massage, lymphatic drainage, and wellness experiences. Post treatment care and future recommendations for client wellbeing will also be included in their learnings.

A launch welcoming in the offering at CRC will take place on the 5th September from 2 – 5pm, at the college’s Cambridge campus. Guest speakers will include Jody Jones from VTCT, one of the UK’s market-leading Awarding and End-point Assessment Organisations who offer technical and vocational qualifications. Jody will explain how the Standard was created and present detail on key elements such as professional practice and services.
