We regulate chiropractic education and training in the UK to make sure that chiropractors are trained to deliver high levels of patient care and safety. To do this, we set standards and then check that education and training providers, as well as chiropractors, are working to these standards.

Our role in chiropractic education broadly covers four areas:

  • Undergraduate education: setting the standards for education providers wanting to provide chiropractic degrees; helping students achieve those standards so that they are registration-ready and can competently adhere to our Code
  • Assuring quality in chiropractic education: ensuring education providers meet our requirements through quality assurance, including visits to check compliance with prospective providers and annual audits with existing providers
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD): helping chiropractors stay up to date with their knowledge, skills and expertise via our mandatory scheme of CPD. Registered chiropractors must meet our CPD requirements to remain on the register.
  • Ensuring the safety of registrants from overseas via our test of competence.

Anyone wishing to practise as chiropractor in the UK must register with us by law. To register you must meet certain criteria – read more here.
