The College of Radiographers (CoR) Education and Career Framework (ECF) (fourth edition) provides guidance for the education and career development of the radiography profession.
The ECF defines the various levels of radiography practice and the educational standards related to each of them. The framework informs the CoR’s pre- and post-registration programme approval process. It also informs the accreditation of individual members of the radiography workforce through the CoR accreditation schemes.
Importantly, the goal of the ECF is to support improved outcomes for patients through the education and development of the radiography workforce. The involvement of representatives from the CoR Patient Advisory Group (PAG) in this research has been important to ensure the framework is patient-centred.
