How our standards apply to students and learners

Standards that you should be aware of while undertaking an approved programme

You should be aware of our standards when undertaking approved programmes. You have started your professional journey and so should be aware of how our standards impact you now, to facilitate the transition to becoming a registered professional.

We do not hold learners to standards and do not have a learner register. However, we provide guidance for leaners about how they should view our standards while undertaking an approved programme.

Standards of conduct, performance and ethics

The standards of conduct, performance and ethics set out the ethical framework within which our registrants must work.

It is important that you are aware of our standards of conduct performance and ethics. We have judged that your programme’s curriculum delivers these standards, and that you are assessed as meeting them through the programme’s assessment.
