changes to professional experience requirements


From January 2013 we will introduce a new and improved scheme, the Practical Experience Portfolio (PEP), to replace the IPDS. The PEP will ensure that high standards are maintained and that students benefit from a wide-ranging and relevant workplace experience to complement the educational development obtained through PQ study. The new scheme is more streamlined and will remove unnecessary complexity and greatly reduce the administrative burden on students and employers. Find out more about the transition from IPDS to PEP and check PEP frequently asked questions for more information on the new scheme.
