Have you adopted the new approach to training yet? Although not mandatory until 1 November 2016 over 46% of the profession have already moved away from the 16 hours CPD regime to the new Continuing Competence format. There is no longer an obligation to attend accredited courses. Instead, practitioners will need to regularly reflect on their practice and implement their own programme of individual learning and development and sign a declaration as part of the Practising Certificate Renewal exercise that this has been done. Further details and useful templates for this are available from the SRA website (continuing competence toolkit).

We predict that there will still be a need for useful practitioner focused courses which provide for networking and an opportunity to hear from specialists in the field as part of the Continuing Competence process so we will continue to list local courses that may be of interest to practitioners. If you are running a course or know of a course that may be of interest to other members we are happy to list details here. Please contact swanlawsoc@gmail.com. If you perceive a need for a course on a particular topic please let us know.
