Consultation on the threshold level of qualification for entry to the Register for paramedics

25/09/2017 - 15/12/2017

This consultation is now closed.

We are seeking views on changing the threshold level of qualification for entry to the Register for paramedics set out in the first standard of the Standards of education and training ('SET 1').

This consultation proposes that the level specified in SET 1 for paramedics should be changed, seeking views on what level SET 1 should change to and on timescales for implementation.

SET 1 is the contemporary level of education and training considered necessary for entry to the Register. A change in SET 1 would not directly affect existing registered paramedics, or students part way through pre-registration education and training programmes.

You can download a copy of the consultation document below. You will need to refer to this when responding.

There are a number of ways to respond to the consultation:

The closing date for responses is Friday 15 December 2017.
