WebinarXtra: ETR - The new route to qualification

In this WebinarXtra podcast, Martyn Jones, Head of Curriculum Development and Dr Rebekah Stevens, Lead Assessor at The College of Optometrists, answer questions following their webinar 'Preparing for ETR – the new route to qualification as an optometrist." This webinar provided an introduction to the GOC’s new education and training requirements, focussing on how the College will partner with universities and employers in future, and the differences between the current Scheme for Registration and future arrangements.

Martyn and Rebekah address a range of questions which were asked during the live webinar, including why these changes are happening, how standards will be upheld and the arrangements employers will need to make with students for the new Clinical Learning in Practice placements.

If you’d like to find out more information about ETR and what the changes will mean, please visit the ETR area of our website including videos explaining the new route to qualification.
