Pass lists: why are they important?
May signals the start of a particularly busy period for our Registration Department as we receive an influx of new applications to join the HCPC Register from students who have completed one of our approved education and training programmes.
In order to confirm that the individuals applying to our Register have successfully completed an approved programme, the Registration Department relies on checking that applicants are on pass lists for the relevant programme sent to us by education providers.
So just why are pass lists so important?
Here’s six things that education providers should be aware of…
1. We are unable to process an individual’s application for registration without a pass list.
2. If you do not submit a pass list in a timely manner, students’ registration may be delayed.
3. You should send us a pass list when you are satisfied that all your award requirements have been fully met and conferred.
4. We will only register applicants if their full name and date of birth matches those on the pass list so accuracy of data is very important.
5. We accept pass lists at any time of the year. If a pass list is updated, an updated version should be sent to us.
6. Pass lists should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org in the format we require.
Without pass lists, we are unable to process applications for registration. This means that failure to submit them will result in individuals experiencing delays in their registration, affecting their ability to use the relevant protected title.
Therefore, we ask education providers to submit their pass lists as soon as practically possible to prevent any delays in registration.
