CPD Audit

As an essential quality assurance exercise, we carry out a CPD audit, where 5% of teaching members 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 audit. It is important that you keep evidence throughout the CPD year.

Examples include but are not restricted to:

  • copies of certificates, and
  • letters of attendance.

All evidence must show:

  • your name,
  • the date (or range of dates) of the activity,
  • the title of the activity, and
  • confirmation of your participation.

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 two CPD years.

CPD audit form

If you have been selected to participate in the CPD audit, we will send you a form that you must complete and return with supporting documentation. We will not be able to complete the audit of your activity without this form.

What happens when we receive your form?

We will send you an email confirming receipt of your audit data and 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, and no further clarification is required, we will contact you to confirm whether you have successfully completed your CPD requirement for the 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 requirement for the year and explain what will happen next.
