HCPC Consultation on the threshold level of qualification for entry to the Register for paramedics

Our next chat aims to discuss the current @The_HCPC Consultation that runs from 25 September 2017 to 15 December 2017.

The @The_HCPC are seeking views on changing the threshold level of qualification for entry to the Register for paramedics set out in the first standard of the Standards of Education and Training (SET 1). This consultation proposes that the level specified in SET 1 for paramedics should be changed. SET 1 is the level of education and training considered necessary for entry to the @The_HCPC  Register and it is currently set at Equivalent of Certificate Level for paramedics. The options available within the Consultation are a change to a) Diploma Level, b) Degree Level or c) other. The consultation also aims to seeks views on the timescales for implementation of any change.

We would like you to join us on this tweetchat to discuss the potential changes, what changes could mean for the paramedic profession and whether you will be submitting your opinions to the consultation before it ends.

The @ParamedicsUK has long held the view that the requirements as laid out in the current SET are no longer fit-for-purpose and that the paramedic profession should move to degree-level. They urge both their members and registered paramedics to respond to the @The_HCPC consultation and give their support to a change in the entry-level requirement to degree-level.

More awareness needed of other opportunities aside from ambu service. Trusts could offer secondments in other areas of healthcare. #WePmds
