CACHE Health and science
We’ve been delivering qualifications for over 170 years to more than 1,000 UK and overseas partners in the health and science sector, and we’re committed to developing qualifications that fill skills gaps, train exceptional practitioners, and ensure no learner who wants to pursue a career in this field is left behind.
Our qualifications cover Levels 1 – 5, end-point assessment (EPA) of apprenticeship standards and, continuing professional development (CPD) courses. These all offer entry and progression into the health and science sector.
We were also awarded the contract by the government to develop the technical qualifications that underpin T Levels in health, healthcare science and science. These new qualifications, being taught from September 2021, signify a revolution in technical education and will become one of the main learning routes for those aged 16-18.

Opportunities in health and science
Doctors, nurses and midwives represent a third of NHS staff. This highlights its multi-disciplinary nature, and how it depends on others like healthcare scientists, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
The Health Foundation, The King’s Fund and Nuffield Trust report of staff shortages that could rise to 100,000 by 2030. Nursing and midwifery have the highest number of vacancies at over 35,000.
With so many opportunities in the sector, it’s now more important than ever for learners to pursue careers in health and science, and for current practitioners to continue to upskill and progress.
Collaborating for success
We work closely with organisations including Skills for Health , Science Council , Royal Society of Chemistry and the Institute of Food Science and Technology. This helps us to make sure our qualifications are empowering learners to fill the gaps needed for the future of health and science.
