Education Strategic Review consultation – have your say

Time is running out to respond to our consultation on new draft Education Standards for providers and Learning Outcomes for students. Feedback from the consultation will help us to ensure that optical education is future proof as technology continues to evolve and roles become more multidisciplinary. For more information and to get involved, visit the GOC Consultation Hub. The last date to respond is Monday 25 February.

Upcoming events

In the next couple of months, we will be exhibiting at Optometry Tomorrow and Optrafair, both in Birmingham. We’ll be there to discuss anything in this month’s eBulletin or answer any questions you might have – make sure to stop by and say hello!

We will be at Optometry Tomorrow from 24-25 February at stall number 9. For more information about the event, visit   

We will also be exhibiting at Optrafair Exchange from 30 March – 1 April. If you’re interested in attending, visit Hope to see you there!
