Education Strategic Review: call for evidence
 

Closing date: 16 March 2017

Our Education Strategic Review will ensure that education programmes and qualifications leading to GOC registration equip students to meet patients’ future needs, as technological change and the increased prevalence of enhanced services are altering the roles that optometrists and dispensing opticians play in delivering eye care.

We are now seeking views from a wide range of stakeholders – optical professionals and students, education providers, patient representatives, employers, professional bodies , commissioners and fellow regulators; with a view to publishing a statement summarising the responses and setting out the way forward in spring 2017.
