Education and Training
Quality • Professionalism • Best Practice
Since 1999, The UK Reiki Federation has worked extensively on promoting Reiki and best practice for practitioners, with UK Reiki Federation representatives having been continuously involved with the various groups which have been working on revised standards for training of professional practitioners, over many years. One of the aims in promoting good practice is to improve the acceptance of Reiki as a viable tool to be used within the NHS, and via its CPD courses the UK Reiki Federation is able to offer guidance to its members.
National Occupational Standards (NOS) are statements of competence and are written to measure outcomes. National Occupational Standards describe good practice. Essentially, standards describe what happens in the workplace -- not what people are like.
A Core Curriculum provides a framework on which to develop courses, and should always be read alongside the NOS (National Occupational Standards).
Professionals in most industries are required to take part in continuing professional development (CPD) and we as Reiki practitioners should be no exception to this.
The UK Reiki Federation is able to provide a review of a practitioner's existing training against the 2009 National Occupational Standards for Reiki and the recommendations of the Core Curriculum
The UK Reiki Federation's directory of practitioners and teachers provides individuals with a range of options for receiving Reiki, and for training. However, for those who plan to work within the NHS it is recommended that the training they receive meets the full recommendations of the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) which makes references to the National Occupational Standards for Reiki. Many of our teacher members will be working with these standards, but we also have available a Directory of Approved Courses, which are courses which have been checked and verified that they include the recommended training standards.
