Our examinations and qualifications are intended for independent candidates who are not attached to accredited postgraduate training courses and wish to take an independent approach to learning.
Candidates and their supervisors will need to make appropriate arrangements for access to academic facilities and support throughout the period of training. This may involve arranging library access at local universities and might include buying into modules of training courses.
Supported by events, workshops and supervision, candidates undertake a high standard of training to become eligible for Chartered Membership and eligible to apply to the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) for registration.
Candidates enrolled for the Society’s independent route qualifications must ensure that they have appropriate professional liability insurance.
