Key findings

  • GOsC made progress since last year in relation to collecting EDI data about its registrants.    It ran a pilot survey with registrants, with plans to improve the way it collects EDI data at registration and renewal from 2023.
  • The GOsC launched an EDI framework and is part of a research project to consider the experiences of student osteopaths from underrepresented groups.
  • The GOsC launched a Communications and Engagement Strategy 2021-24 which it says will improve relationships with stakeholders and improve understanding of the GOsC’s role.
  • The GOsC consulted on its review of the Guidance for Osteopathic Pre-registration Education,    as well as the development of a new set of Standards for Education and Training.
  • The GOsC continued to evaluate the CPD scheme it launched in 2018 and facilitated several webinars to support osteopaths in completing their CPD.
