Welcome to our CPD programme

Activities

We send you pre-selected activities for the number of CEU’s required. Our activities are self study material which can be completed in your own time. Activities consist of profession – specific reading material from open source peer reviewed journals with a multiple-choice questionnaire based on the reading material.  An answer sheet is provided which should be sent back for assessment or completed online.

  • All answer sheets should be returned before the end of each year.
  • A pass rate of  70% is required.
  • Answers are in the reading material, no additional research needed.
  • Our CPD activities are level 1 CEU’s.
