Arts Therapies Degree (Level 7) Apprenticeship - demand scoping

The Arts Therapies Apprenticeship Standard  which covers Art Therapy/Art Psychotherapy, Music Therapy and Dramatherapy professions was approved in 2019.

Unfortunaltley, to date, no Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) are offering this apprenticeship. Therefore a Task and Finish Group has been convened to work with employers and HEI’s to generate apprenticeship starts. 

To understand employer demand, you are invited to complete the scoping survey below. We welcome responses from all employers including those who may not yet employ arts therapists. Arts therapists work actively with a wide range of client groups across the age span including mental health, learning disabilities, children and young people. 

This survey will close on the 1 March 2022. The survey will take approximately 4 minutes to complete.
