Learning Resources and CPD

We would like to remind all members of the new learning resources section in the members only area of the website, where links to CPD opportunities can be accessed. CPD submissions for 2023 should be with the Institute by 31 January 2024 and we would remind all scheme participants that the online system allows CPD to be recorded ‘as you go’, and attachments to be added, to avoid the need to search about looking for records at the end of the year. We would encourage EHOs to seek to achieve Chartered EHO status, demonstrating commitment to ongoing professional development and to the profession. The Scheme of Continuing Professional Development is available on the website here
