What opportunities are there for the student upon completion of this course.
The 10 week HCA & Technicians study programme at present, is only offered to internal members of staff.
In the near future, we hope to provide a City and Guilds 10 week HCA technicians course for external delegates. This will be advertised via this website.
This course does not have any specific entry criteria, however it is recommended that all students applying have at least six months’ experience of working within an ophthalmic setting and have their managers support to undertake the course as it will require students to be given time to study and learn new skills. Students should also have good literacy skills and basic IT skills, as they will be required to prepare a portfolio, poster presentation and a case study as part of this course. Managers should not recommend their staff for this course if they do not feel they have the potential to succeed. It is a requirement that any member of staff from Moorfields NHS Foundation Trust that is employed after April 2015 has completed their Care Certificate prior to undertaking the HCA and Techs Ophthalmic course.
All students must be over the age of 18.
