Physiotherapist education framework

All entry to practice programmes are expected to meet the minimum threshold competences set out in our Physiotherapist education framework. The framework supports the development and implementation of quality continuing professional development (CPD) in the profession.

The framework is being translated into different languages, which will be uploaded to the website as soon as they are available.
