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).
The UK Reiki Federation is happy to highlight courses offered by their teacher members, which, in their opinion, are appropriate for training purposes. This list is not exhaustive and many other courses are offered by our Teacher Members. Prospective students are recommended to visit our list of Teachers and to contact them individually regarding courses on offer.
The UK Reiiki Federation Directory of Approved Courses lists two types of courses; Professional Practitioner Courses which meet the current minimum recommendations for professional training, and those which are suitable for CPD (Continuing & Professional Development).
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.
