thanks for your advice which I deem as valuable.
However I should like to draw to your attention on the application form.
You can load up by going to hcpc registration form and tap on UK graduates application.
Most of it is self explanatory. But please check Sect. 8 on character reference - It says the referee should know the candidate for at least 3 years. Does the referee who has known the candidate for that length time in good stead has to mention of the past incident that was about 5 years ago.
Of course the candidate will have to declare of any criminal offence any way. There is some information in section 3 of guide lines of the application form.
Please check and comment of its implications.
Since the one off incident my son has maintained good charcter and conduct.
Should you like to discuss this please call on *********** /p>
