Education Strategic Review update

We are continuing to make progress with our Education Strategic Review, developing proposals for the future that build upon the Call for Evidence responses that we received earlier this year. We now have a dedicated webpage for the Review, which will be a regular source of new information about the work we are doing to review our education standards and requirements for the future.  

We have already published the Independent Summary Report of the Call for Evidence and have now added our Education Strategic Review Project Plan. The Project Plan sets out the range of themes we are considering in the Review at present, including exploring the extent to which optometrists’ and dispensing opticians’ roles may change across the UK in the future.  It also includes an indicative timeline for the project.  

We are working towards a public consultation at the end of 2017 that will provide an opportunity for you to feed in your views on what the future system of education and training should look like. Find out more about Education Strategic Review developments on our website here.
