Launch of new APP and FCP progression pathway

Ascenti is launching a new progression pathway, making us the only UK employer to offer everything needed to move through a complete career journey, from graduate to APP or FCP.

We are proud of our strong reputation for investing in the training and development of our physiotherapists. It’s part of our heritage and has helped Ascenti to become the team and business that we are today. 

As part of our ongoing programme of investment in our people, we are now launching a new progression pathway which will enable physiotherapists at Ascenti to qualify as an Advanced Physiotherapist Practitioner (APP) or progress into a First Contact Practitioner (FCP) role. We are also welcoming external applications to join as an MSK physiotherapist developing into an FCP or APP on this pathway (see our current vacancies for more details). 

This is a big step forward for us as a business and the profession, as it will mean that we are the only employer in the UK offering physiotherapists the funded training, support and nationwide opportunities needed to move through a complete career journey, from graduate to FCP or APP.

This new progression pathway has been designed for MSK physiotherapists who may be looking at becoming an FCP or APP next, or even further into the future as a longer-term goal. It is a significant financial investment in the qualifications, credentials, and continued development of our people. 

Ascenti’s Head of Clinical Excellence, Alison Day, said: “What makes our FCP and APP promotional pathway different is the variety and the clinical development that we will be offering. 

“MSK physiotherapists joining our developing FCP or APP programme will have some days focusing on assessing, diagnosing, and signposting patients when in advanced clinics and then other days treating patients in their non-advanced MSK clinics. We also have virtual advanced physio opportunities that can be combined with in-person clinics - this is not something you will find anywhere else!”
