I need to be assessed to be competent by my supporting organisation, supervisor or counter signatory, right?

Myth 2






No – only the HCPC will assess competency to practice through a returners evidence. Returners submit their evidence of updating and self-declare they are fit and competent to practice.

Don’t forget, returners hold a qualification, they just need to re-gain their registration with the HCPC to use a protected title.

Return to Practice is self-led by the returners, they identify gaps in their own knowledge and skills and come up with an action plan. The placement organisation or supervisor just ‘signs off’ their days of supervised practice or spent undertaking study.
