GDC launches consultation on training changes
The General Dental Council (GDC) has launched a consultation on proposed changes to the way it quality assures education and training leading to registration for dental professionals.
The regulator says it is seeking to use its resources more efficiently, supporting education and training providers to drive improvements in dental education.
The proposals seek to replace a ‘one size fits all’ approach, instead taking into account factors such as an assessment of a professional’s scope of practice and an education provider’s past performance.
Ross Scales, Acting Head of Education Policy and Quality Assurance, said: “We want to channel our resources effectively into those areas that will bring the greatest benefit, while working closely with training and education providers.”
