Inspection reports

Underneath the details for each school are links to the most recent GDC inspection reports for each programme. Please note that the first report for a programme will not be published until the year the first cohort graduates, or later if an ongoing sufficiency decision cannot be given at that point. At the end of each report are observations received from the school on the contents of the report and any requirements and recommendations made by the GDC.

    Higher Education Diploma in Dental Technology

    This programme has been provisionally accepted by the GDC Registrar. The decision as to the approval of a new programme for dental care professionals will not be made until the first cohort has completed their studies and examinations, or assessments, and the programme inspected by the GDC. The recommendations of the inspection panel must then be considered by the Registrar. Please contact the provider for further information about the programme.
