CPD audit

From September each year, we will carry out a CPD Audit, where five percent of teachers will be selected and asked to submit evidence in support of their CPD declaration.

If you are selected you must provide evidence that you have met the minimum requirement of 20 hours of CPD. 

You will only need to submit evidence if you are selected to participate in the CPD Audit. It is important that you keep evidence throughout the CPD year. Examples include but are not restricted to:

  • copies of certificates
  • letters of attendance

All evidence must show:

  1. Your name
  2. The date (or range of dates) of the activities
  3. Title of the activities
  4. Confirmation of your participation in the activities

The evidence provided should be able to verify your attendance/participation in the specified activity.

We recommend that you keep supporting evidence for a minimum of 18 months.

CPD Audit Information

If you have been selected to participate in the CPD Audit, you must complete a CPD Audit form and return it with supporting documentation.

  •  CPD Audit form can be obtained from your National Office.

We will not be able to complete the audit of your activity without this form.

2017/18 CPD Year Audit

We will undertake an audit of the worldwide teaching membership for the 2017/18 CPD year starting in mid-April 2019

What happens when we receive your form?

  • We will send you an email confirming receipt of your audit data. 
  • We will review the information you have sent us. 
  • If we need any further clarification or information regarding your evidence we will contact you either via email or telephone.
  • Once we have reviewed the information you have sent us we will contact you to confirm whether you have successfully completed your CPD requirement for the CPD year.
  • If after further consultation with you, you have been unable to demonstrate that you have met the minimum CPD requirement we will send confirmation that you have not completed your CPD requirement for the CPD year and explain what will happen next.
