We are not responsible for the assessment process or eligibility of students to gain registration with any external organisation.

If you want to join a scheme please ensure you speak to your chosen scheme provider to check their specific requirements. Recent changes to schemes have made these routes much more confusing and we recommend anyone looking to register should future proof their career by completing Steps 1-4.
