Changes to registration titles

We are changing the structure of the registration categories NRCPD regulates in response to the Setting the Standard consultation.

Our goal is to provide an easy to understand category structure with consistent standards and policies, so we will provide:

  • one Registered category for individuals who have met the agreed safe to practise standards in each of the six professions we regulate; and
  • one Trainee category in each of those professions.

Our aim is to move to that position quickly to achieve the greater clarity requested by the public, and in a way that actively includes everyone who is currently registered to make sure professionals and their clients alike are not disadvantaged unnecessarily.
