Section A – Your Details

Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Our code of professional conduct requires a commitment to using evidence-based practice and continuing professional development to keep up to date with emergent progress relevant to your practice. We expect practitioners to keep a written record of their CPD.
CPD may (or may not) involve elements of reflective practice, research, ongoing training,
attendance at conferences/ lectures or personal study.
We have a broad view of CPD based on the benefits for:
● The practitioner, in terms of ongoing learning or skill/ personal development.
● The clients or service users.
● The quality of their practice or service delivery.
