Welcome to AMSPAR

AMSPAR works with City & Guilds/ILM to provide a range of nationally recognised accredited qualifications suitable for delivery as either full or part time study programmes. We offer these courses via the AMSPAR Health Academy.  These range from Level 2 through to Level 5 and are available in a range of funded packages. AMSPAR also offer a number of non-framework courses. Our vocational courses allow you to explore your aspirations and continue with lifelong learning.  We are a professional membership body and registered charity.  AMSPAR is acknowledged by NHS Careers for non-clinical administration and management roles. Our qualifications are widely accepted by the NHS and Health organisations in the UK and internationally. Credits awarded in our professional and vocational courses at level 5, which are listed on the Ofqual register, may be used to help you gain an Open University qualification or degree.
