Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMPs) have the potential to address significant and growing unmet healthcare needs. They offer the promise of treating and altering the course of diseases which cannot be addressed adequately by existing pharmaceuticals. The UK is at the leading edge of this disruptive industry and there is an opportunity to build a large-scale industry delivering health and wealth.

The Advanced Therapies Apprenticeship Community (ATAC) was established to develop apprenticeship programmes designed specifically for the Advanced Therapies industry, and has now been extended to support wider bioprocessing.

What is ATAC?

Guidance for apprentices

Guidance for employers


“It is our very clear intention to recruit more valuable and enthusiastic new starters at Level 3 and Level 5 each year. We wouldn’t have had the same experience without our involvement with ATAC. We have an excellent apprenticeship team at NHSBT, made all the more effective and impactful by the association with the ATAC community. We thank everyone involved with ATAC for their continued support and their expansion of programmes each year to meet more and more skills needs.”

Mel Harper, Apprenticeship Lead, NHS Blood and Transplant

“ATAC have been an amazing resource for RoslinCT and have helped to ensure that our apprenticeship journey has went smoothly at every step of the way. The ATAC team have been readily available to provide support, opportunities to meet other businesses in similar situations and ultimately enhance our apprentices’ experience. They are proactive at organising events for apprentices and employers, which are always well worth attending.”
