Following the recent funding announcement by Health Education England’s National School of Healthcare Science (NSHCS) and the Academy, we are looking to expand our pool of reviewers for the Scientist Training Programme (STP) Equivalence route.

The STP Equivalence route comprises the assessment of a portfolio and an interview undertaken by a panel of reviewers. The assessment of a portfolio will usually take between one and two hours, and the interview process a maximum of two hours, including pre and post interview panel meetings.

Normally, reviewers should be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council as a Clinical Scientist, in good standing with the Regulator and professional body, and currently working at an appropriate level.

This is not a paid or salaried role but can contribute to continuing professional development. Training will be provided ahead of the first assessment.

We ask that reviewers to undertake a minimum of three STPE reviews per year, although we may approach a reviewer to do more if there is significant demand.
