We are delighted to announce that we are now a Registered Provider with the CPD Standards Office (www.cpdstandards.com). Going forward this means that we can issue formal CPD Certificates of Attendance for our members which they can use for their formal CPD record for a professional body, institute or employer.
The CPD Standards Office awards independent CPD accreditation to training and learning activities across all professions and sectors. The CPD Standards Office seeks to raise standards by accrediting high-quality CPD provision, including new forms of CPD such as coaching, webinars and downloads.
Usually a professional body accredits only training providers in that sector and normally focuses on content. The CPD Standards Office's independent accreditation:
- Focuses on the educational processes and so guarantees quality
- Is 100% focused on CPD provision and accredits by item. Many professional bodies only accredit the training provider as an organisation.
- Is rooted in ongoing academic and practitioner-based research on CPD best practice.
We are excited about working with the CPD Standards Office and believe that their support will enable us to ensure the highest quality learning for our members.
