Temporary Mechanism to support 2020 graduates from RCCP accredited courses

Step 1
Graduates in the summer 2020 to go ahead as far as possible with higher education institutions (HEIs) implementing alternative assessments where appropriate, according to HEI quality procedures.  The pass list will be provided to RCCP.
Step 2
Graduates apply to join the RCCP register in order to seek employment. They will need to also provide the RCCP with a statement of support to complete their CPD portfolio within 1 year signed by their employer as part of application process.
Step 3

Step 4
RCCP CPD assessors scrutinise registrant CPD portfolios one year after joining the register.


If CPD approved by RCCP assessor, full registration status continues.
If the CPD is rejected, the registrant has a right to appeal considered.
If resubmission is unsuccessful following an appeal (if applicable) – their name will be removed from the RCCP register.
