Flying Start Pillars of Practice

Pillars of Practice

The four Pillars of Practice and related outcomes must be achieved to complete the Flying Start programme.  Please familiarise yourself with these and think about which outcomes you may be achieving, or can work towards achieving, dependent on your learning at that time.  How you meet these outcomes, will be specific to you, your role, and your practice setting. See also Pillars of Practice presentation.


It is your responsibility as a registered professional to ensure you are aware of the requirements of the programme.  The following information is a list from The Definitive Guide, which highlights who is involved in the process to support you, and the responsibilities of each individual.
