Welcome to our CET-themed eBulletin

Welcome to the August eBulletin. I hope you have been enjoying your summer wherever you are! This month's eBulletin is a special Continuing Education Training (CET) edition, where we will be exploring all things CET.

This edition includes an interview with Helen Tilley, a registrant GOC Council member, which explores her personal experiences of pursuing CET and her approach to professional development.

Our second interview is with Marcus Dye, Head of Standards and CET. Marcus discusses the CET Review, the benefits of reflective practice, and more.

We also spoke with a dispensing optician and an optometrist to learn about their reflections on the last CET cycle and the importance of CET.

We share with you some of the insights from our 2016 -18 CET cycle evaluation, ahead of the publication of the full report in November.

And finally, we provide you with an update about the Education Strategic Review (ESR), as well as information about an upcoming webinar about our new Standards for Optical Businesses, which will come into effect 1 October.

Best wishes

Lesley Longstone
