    i don't believe that there is such a thing. Paramedics (who don't go through the higher education course) are just ambulance technicians who have done the job for a long time and take additional training, which I guess would be provided direct from the NHS trust they are working for.

    To quote from their site
    Most applicants will initially be recruited as Ambulance Care Assistants (though some services offer direct entry programmes for Ambulance Technicians) they will then be recruited internally for further training as an Ambulance Technician.

    To apply for Paramedic training you will normally need to have had at least one years operational experience as a qualified Ambulance Technician and you must also have passed the written and practical examinations set by the IHCD, the national awarding body for ambulance qualifications
