Course Providers and Awarding Bodies

If a course provider intends to deliver a new programme that will lead to registration, they are required to demonstrate how the programme will meet the Standards for education. To achieve this, we ask providers to complete a mapping document (which we provide) that describes how the course will meet the Standards for education and what evidence is, or will be, available to prove this.

Course providers must also complete a curriculum mapping table which we will also provide. A curriculum mapping table contains all the learning outcomes for a registered profession. These are contained in the publication Preparing for practice. The mapping table requires the education provider to specify where and how each outcome will be assessed in the programme.
