- This Level 3 Diploma is designed for Assistant Anatomical Pathology Technologists.
- The qualification consists of five knowledge units and five competency units and meets the requirements of the Modernising Scientific Careers (MSC) and Practitioner Training Programmes.
- The competency units are undertaken in the workplace, so the qualification is only suitable for those employed as trainee Anatomical Pathology Technologists.
- The qualification recognises the unique role performed by Anatomical Pathology Technologists as part of the Life Science workforce, specifically their place of work being a mortuary rather than a laboratory and their need to interact with bereaved members of the public.
This qualification is the first step in a career pathway for Anatomical Pathology Technologists.
Successful learners can progress to the Level 4 Diploma in Healthcare Science (Anatomical Pathology Technology) followed by a Foundation Degree in Anatomical Pathology and a BSc in Healthcare Science (Anatomical Pathology).
