A reminder of the update made to the minimum number of placement hours for EYE learners. Please read the document below.
After COVID it was recognised that the number of hours that learners need to complete their skills and competencies could be reduced.
It is recommended that learners complete 750 hours but they can complete a minimum of 300 hours if they complete their skills and competencies.
