Education

We support the development of high-quality physiotherapist education as set out in our policy statement and supporting documents. We recognise that physiotherapist education is a continuum of learning. It starts with the entry level physiotherapist education programme that permits entry to the profession, followed by developing and maintaining continued competence to practice. This is supported by World Physiotherapy's Physiotherapist education framework and a range of resources.

These resources are available to help enhance education delivery, and education at all stages of professional development.

World Physiotherapy resources

  • Physiotherapist education framework  – all entry to practice programmes are expected to meet minimum threshold competences set out in our Physiotherapist education framework PDF document (2021). This document also supports the development of quality continuing professional development (CPD) in the profession.

The framework is being translated into French and Spanish and will be uploaded to the website in these languages in due course.

It is important to us that we gather feedback about the implementation of the framework. Please send any comments to [email protected]
