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.
