Professional registration demonstrates that you have achieved a level of knowledge and experience that employers can rely on and is recognised by the wider work force. It highlights the value and commitment you place on your own personal development.

Our application Support Clinics are designed for anyone who may be looking to start an application or who has already started. 

In these workshops we will guide you through the application process for each registration. This will include helping you to write your competences. We also look at:

  • exemptions
  • equivalence reports
  • abstracts
  • supporters
  • our professional review including the competencies for your chosen professional register

Before attending these workshops, you should look through the guidance notes for the professional registration that interests you. Think about areas of the application you are most interested in knowing more about and come prepared with answers on the competencies. The team will help you formulate answers during the workshop.
