Fitness for Professional Practice

Explains the assessment for those who work or come into contact with vulnerable or potentially vulnerable individuals.

If you are undertaking preparation for entry to a profession whose members work with, or come into contact with, vulnerable or potentially vulnerable individuals, you must be assessed and deemed suitable for entry to that profession on grounds of physical and mental health, and behaviour.

The assessment will also take into consideration any referrals to the Student Disciplinary Committee.

If you are deemed to be unsuitable for entry to that profession, you may be required to withdraw, either temporarily or permanently, from your course.
