Hearing care assistant

A career worth hearing about

Working as a hearing care assistant will allow you to immerse yourself in an exciting environment that engages and develops interests in clinical anatomy and physiology, the physics of sound and exciting new developments in hearing aid technology. This varied and multifaceted role has developed into an essential and valued position within our growing audiology business and is an important member of our busy, in-store hearing team. Entry requirements for the course are GCSE qualifications in both English and mathematics.

Well equipped

You’ll be a registered professional, supporting the Specsavers store audiologists and hearing aid dispensers getting involved with video otoscopy, hearing assessments, impression taking, servicing and repairing of hearing aids, fitting digital hearing aids, recommending hearing aid accessories and provision of hearing protection. With Specsavers you’ll have access to a fantastic range of digital hearing aid products and all the latest audiometric testing equipment.

Outstanding training and development

You’ll be actively encouraged to continue developing your clinical skills throughout your time at Specsavers and keep yourself up to speed with all the latest industry developments. You will have access to our Professional Advancement Conference, product launches and supported training workshops and roadshows each year to help you grow. If you wish to move on and become a fully qualified hearing aid dispenser, we’ll support you as you undertake further university-based training.

Fantastic support

Initially you will work under the supervision of a registered hearing aid dispenser and will undertake a blended learning approach, with a combination of distance-learning reading material, course workshops, online tests, workbooks, in-store practical experience and face-to-face practical exams.

The course materials are available online for the students to study at their convenience. Practical skills are introduced during the compulsory workshops, and then developed in the student’s own workplace with their supervisor, using the Practical Placement logbook to record the student’s progress. Once you have completed the course and passed your exams, you will then work with the team under indirect supervision and take charge of your own clinical list.

Be the best you can be
