Consultation on the profession-specific standards of proficiency for speech and language therapists

05/04/2013 - 28/06/2013

This consultation is now closed. You can download a document summarising the responses we received to this consultation and our decisions as a result below.

The new standards of proficiency for speech and language therapists were published on 6 January 2014 and are available here.

We consultinged on proposed changes to the profession-specific standards of proficiency for speech and language therapists.

The standards of proficiency explain the key obligations that the HCPC expects of registered health, psychological, and social care professionals. They contain generic standards that apply to all registrants, and profession-specific standards that set out the different requirements for specific professions.

We have already revised and restructured the generic standards. Under the new structure, most of the standards of proficiency will be profession-specific, listed under 15 new generic standards.

The review is an opportunity to make sure the standards of proficiency are relevant to each profession. No standards will be lost, but the language used may change to ensure the standards are appropriate and applicable to individual professions.

We used the responses we receive to decide if further changes are needed. After the final sets of standards are approved by our Council, they will be published. We will work with education providers to phase-in the new standards gradually after each profession’s revised standards are published.
