The Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) Standards of proficiency sets out the professional standards that are considered necessary for the safe and effective practice of each of the professions they regulate.
Each set of standards is unique to each of the 16 registered professions, and sets out clear expectations of registrants’ knowledge and abilities when they start practising.
All registrants must meet the HCPC Standards of proficiency in order to become registered, and remain on the Register.
HCPC periodically review all of their standards to ensure that they remain up to date and fit for purpose, and are now due to review the Standards of proficiency.
For the first time, they will be streamlining the review process to review all 16 professions at once. The process for the review is as follows:
The background to the review and the process is set out in more detail in the recent HCPC Review of the Standards of Proficiency.
