“CPD is an important part of registration and a professional’s continuing ability to use their professional title.  Under our legislation, the registration board may make bye-laws relating to the education, training and continuing professional development of registrants which will set out details and standards relating to CPD requirements.

The Council is currently developing a CPD model for registrants of the 12 designated professions under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.  The CPD model will be for the purposes of registration only.  The model will be adopted by each registration board for the purpose of that profession.  The model will be the same for all of the 12 professions under the Act.”
