If you are planning to run a new programme for the first time, we need to approve it before it starts
Your progress through our approval progress will depend on whether your institution already runs HCPC-approved provision.
If your institution runs HCPC-approved provision, please complete and return the Approval request form - existing institution. You will have one or more key quality assurance contacts established with us. One of these people should manage the request to approve a new programme.
If your institution does not run HCPC-approved provision, please complete and return the Approval request form - new institution. Through the approval process, we will establish key contacts who will manage the request to approve your institution and programme(s).
- Once you submit a completed form, we will contact you within two weeks with next steps.
- You will have a named contact at the HCPC through the approval process, who will be able to help you at each stage.
- The process is designed to be carried out flexibly with provider needs, and should take no longer than 6 months in total. We will define specific interactions with you as the process progresses.
