New regulations go live

New regulations go live

By Tim Pearce, SRA Policy Executive, 13 June 2014

The LSB has approved the changes to the Training Regulations which are part of our Training for Tomorrow reform and Red Tape Initiative. The new Regulations—which do not alter existing pathways, but provide clearer and more proportionate requirements—will come into effect on 1 July, and will replace the SRA Training Regulations 2011 Part 1 - Qualification Regulations, and the SRA Training Regulations 2011 Part 2 - Training Provider Regulations.

Julie Brannan, the SRA's Director of Education and Training, said: 

I am delighted that the first part of our T4T programme of reform has been approved and that we can now move to implementation as planned on 1 July. The new Regulations are a more proportionate approach to the regulation of pre-admission education and training, taking into account the regulation of higher education by the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education as well as developments in employment law".
