Students must attend clinical placement in a variety of locations across the South West, including mainly unsocial hours (public transport is not a viable option). Students must drive and have access to a motor-vehicle to commute to placement. Applicants without a driving licence will not be able to achieve placement requirements.
Students do not need a C1 licence to join our programme; yet most NHS ambulance Trusts require this. Similarly, there is no requirement for students to undergo emergency driver training whilst studying with us (emergency driving is not a component of the programme).
