Entry requirements (education and training)

This page has information on the entry requirements and skills needed for an education and training role in health informatics

Entry requirements into education and training roles in health informatics will depend on the role and your level in the career framework

It is possible to start in an entry level post without formal qualifications, but GCSEs or equivalent qualifications are an advantage. Apprenticeships in health informatics are also available. More information is available on the City and Guilds website.

Education and training qualifications at QCF level three or above may also be needed for some roles. More senior education and training posts are likely to need a degree or equivalent experience or even a master's qualification. You should always check the person specification for specific posts to fully understand the requirements.

The NHS Graduate Management Training Scheme also has a health informatics strand for graduates with relevant degrees.
