The framework offers transparent entry routes across the profession and guidance about what kind of training and career development options might be right for therapists in the future. As an organisational member you don’t need to do anything at this stage.

As part of our implementation of SCoPEd, a transition period will start in February 2024 and will last for two years. During that time, we’ll be using temporary mechanisms to enable our members to move between membership categories where they have the skills, training, knowledge and experience, if they wish to.

Looking ahead 

Following the transition period, which is expected to finish in early 2026, all our membership category entry requirements will be fully aligned to the standards of the SCoPEd framework columns.

Accredited courses may need longer to integrate any changes into their training programmes and will have until early 2028 to do so.

New accreditation schemes with new routes to move between membership categories will be available at this point. These routes will consider training and CPD alongside other existing skills and experience. More details will be published in due course.
