Abstract

The College of Paramedics has an active interest in providing strategic direction for the educational quality and standards of programmes that prepare paramedics for clinical practice. It is important to clarify that the statutory responsibility for setting and monitoring paramedics' educational standards lies with the profession's regulator, which is the Health Professions Council (HPC). In its role as the professional body, the College of Paramedics is committed to ensure that programmes developing paramedics produce suitably equipped practitioners that meet the wide variety of contemporary practice requirements required by professionals, service users, employers and commissioners.
