Mapping of BSc courses
Our Education and Training Committee is working on one of the recommendations made by the task & finish group which reviewed practitioner registration. The recommendation was for UKPHR to consider whether it would be possible to accredit courses and training providers so that qualifications obtained by practitioners seeking registration could be accepted as Approved Prior Learning.
This project by the Committee is a forerunner in establishing the scope and achievability of the end goal.
UKPHR has developed a mapping tool and is inviting Universities who offer BSc degree courses in public health to map their BSc courses against UKPHR’s amended practitioner registration standards. The University of Wolverhampton is the first to carry out this mapping. As a result of the University’s experience, it is recommended that Universities might want to bring together relevant staff members in a cross-department workshop to keep the time commitment manageable – 2 hours would be reasonable.
UKPHR has committed to display the results of Universities’ mapping on UKPHR’s website on the understanding that this is the University’s mapping and UKPHR has had no involvement beyond providing the mapping tool for this purpose.
UKPHR has agreed to publicise the mapping from Universities to show how their BSc courses compare to our amended practitioner registration standards. For us to do this, we require Universities to use the mapping tool provided by us. We have not been involved in the Universities’ mapping of their own courses. Publication is not to be taken as any kind of accreditation by UKPHR – neither of the Universities nor their courses. UKPHR does not accept any liability for any errors or inaccuracies in the mapping.
If you have already mapped your course to our amended practitioner registration standards, please do send this to us and we will include it in the list on this page. Our email address is email@example.com.
