Joining a regulated profession requires our workforce to follow professional standards including quality assuring, approving, and enhancing the workforce practice. Each regulator presents the professional standards that must uphold to be registered to practise in the UK. If you work in health, social care, or social work, you will be required to work to each regulator’s codes of practice. Look below to find out more.
