The Professional Standards Authority commissioned a review of the education and training standard (Standard 9 of the Standards for accredited registers). The recommendations from this review were put before the Board. The Board agreed that the Accredited Registers’ education and training standards should be explicit to the public.
As a result the Authority is proposing to amend the wording of Standard 9 to make this requirement clear and to amend the assessment process to take these changes into account.
The Authority is now seeking feedback about the proposed changes through a public consultation.
