New success for ECA to tech pathway

More than 200 emergency care assistants (ECAs) have successfully passed their pre-entry exam to progress on the pathway to become a technician.

In more good news, the technician course has been validated by external examiners Edexcel and praised as being “well-researched and developed”, “student focused” and that it equips the first students with the “skills, knowledge and confidence to work operationally at this clinical level.”

Sixty ECAs will now take up a place on the course in 2014/15 and the training team are currently working on allocations. You will be notified of the start date and location of your course in an email from Nicola Irons by early April.

If you do not receive an email, you will be placed on the next available course, which will be in 2015/16. Courses will continue to run until all those who successfully pass the pre-entry exam have had the opportunity to achieve the programme, so please be assured that everyone will have the opportunity to progress on this pathway.

The next round of pre-entry exams will take place in the autumn and further information will be released closer to the time. This will be for ECAs who were unable to take the exam this time and for those who would like to re-sit the exam.
