Monitoring training standards
The Trust Board establishes the training curriculum for Edu-K in the UK and Ireland. The UK training is an enhanced programme incorporating the core curriculum set by the international organisation. Our programme works towards meeting the requirements for the National Occupational Standards for Kinesiology.
The Trust ensures that professional standards of delivering Edu-K are maintained by:
- registering any participant at a course taught by a qualified UK or Irish Instructor with the Trust’s national database
- assessing the professional level accreditation courses to ensure that students have reached the required standard
- setting Continuing Professional Development requirements for all Edu-K Consultants and Instructors
- dealing with professional standards or conduct issues relating to any current professional member of the Trust
