We are really interested in hearing your thoughts and plans about implementing these competencies and if you have any local practice educator meetings, or any other speech and language therapy group meetings, we would be delighted to come and join you. Please email Kathleen Graham at kathleen.graham@rcslt.org to coordinate this.


We are developing resources to support learners’ development of the new pre-registration eating, drinking and swallowing competencies.

We are currently recruiting to working groups to support this.

Good practice examples of EDS practice placements

We have already begun gathering case studies of best practice on EDS practice placements, which we encourage you to read.

If you would like to contribute a case study, please email Padraigin O’Flynn at padraigin.oflynn@rcslt.org.

Have questions or feedback about the pre-registration EDS competencies? Let us know.
