How should Part 3 change? Beatrice Fankael
Beatrice Fraenkel, chair of the ARB
The ARB is extremely interested in this area. However it is important that ARB discusses and works closely with others in developing new ways to look at Part 3 qualifications and practical training experience.
It will take time to consider such matters properly, and given the importance of the Part 3 as the gateway to the profession, at this stage it would be premature for us to put forward specific proposals before we have had those talks .Similarly it would be unhelpful for me to express any views that could appear to pre-empt any outcomes as a consequence.
I would expect there to be a number of different views expressed at this stage from individuals and stakeholders that will form part of the discussions with others.
