Evidence of English language skills

From 21 November 2016 a new law makes it a legal requirement for all registrants and applicants to have the necessary knowledge of English for safe and effective practice as a condition of their registration with us.

If you are applying to join the register and have  completed the appropriate UK qualifications, in most  cases you will automatically satisfy the registrar that you meet the English language requirements. Make sure you read the guidance notes with your application form and our guidance on evidence of English language skills for more information.
