Our Foundation Degree is an opportunity to gain an accredited qualification in Audiology while being employed. You will earn as you learn and obtain a qualification without the usual fees associated to a University Course.
The course is an 18 month work based degree programme run in conjunction with and accredited by Aston University. It runs from September to January, with graduation the following summer. This course automatically entitles you to register with the HCPC, the UK’s governing body which allows you to practice as a as a Hearing Aid Dispenser.
The majority of the programme is on the job learning with one week allocated each month to attend a placement. This is comprised of time at Aston University and the Boots Hearingcare Audiology Training Academy in Birmingham.
Firstly we will train you to become a Hearing Care Assistant to give you a basic grounding in Audiology and enable you to work in a supporting role to an audiologist.
You will then begin the Foundation Degree. Your training will be a combination of home study, shadowing with mentors and supervisors culminating in you running your own appointment diaries in clinic.
Upon successful completion of the degree course, you will be automatically enrolled onto our 3 year Graduate Programme which will support your ongoing professional development within Boots Hearingcare.
You will have support throughout your study; this includes your Line Manager, the Student Support Team at Aston University and the Audiology Learning and Development Team within Boots Hearingcare.
