Returning to practice?

Thinking of taking a career break or returning to practice after a gap? If, and when, you are ready to return to practice you will need to update your details through the on-line form.  You do not need to complete all fields for reactivation but are required to supply evidence of your return to work training (if applicable), a current reference and to complete the Disclosures section of the form.

RCCP, in line with HCPC, suggests that a career break of up to five years, provided CPD is maintained, will enable the post holder to return to practice without further training. In practice, we would expect that most employers will want to provide some return to practice training and in-house competency assessment. Reference to this should be made in the reference provided in your re-application to the Register. Any practitioner that has a career break of more than five years will be expected to provide evidence of return to practice training and competency assessment. The length of any such training will be proportionate to the length of career break but will typically be from six months upward.
