The SCoPEd partners held a free online event on 10 June 2022, 10am – 12pm, to update on phase two of the collective work, which included:

  • an independent impact assessment of the SCoPEd framework
  • creating a shared set of principles – based around fairness, inclusion and transparency – for implementing the framework
  • working towards agreed shared ‘column titles’ which are not included in this version
  • agreeing transparent and evidence-based mechanisms for members and registrants to progress between the columns of the framework as they develop their training, skills, knowledge and experience throughout their professional journey.

This event invited discussion about the collaborative work of the partners, provided updates regarding the ongoing work of the partnership and offered an opportunity for members and registrants to engage and ask questions.

It was hosted by the Independent Chair of the SCoPEd Oversight Committee, Paul Buckley, who was joined by representatives from each of the partners along with representation from our Experts by Experience and the Chair of the Technical Group, Fiona Ballantine Dykes.
