HCPC Standards state that registrants must:
- Maintain a continuous, up to date and accurate record of their CPD activities;
- Demonstrate that their CPD activities are a mixture of learning activities relevant to current or future practice;
- Seek to ensure that their CPD has contributed to the quality or their practice and service delivery;
- Seek to ensure that their CPD benefits the service user and;
- Upon request present a written profile (which must be their own work and supported by evidence) explaining how they have met the standards for CPD.
Meeting the standards can be accomplished in any number of ways from secondment, in-service training, mentoring or research to name but a few.
When you renew your registration you will be asked to sign to confirm that you have met the standards. The HCPC then audit the professions to make sure that the standards are met.
If you are chosen for audit, you will be asked to complete a profile to include a summary of your practice, a statement about how you have met CPD requirements and supporting evidence.
If you have any issues with refusal of re-registration based on incomplete or unacceptable CPD, HCPC defence barristers can help.
