Members may have noticed a new ‘box’ in the members only section of the website, called ‘Learning Resources’. There are some links to places where additional learning/development can be achieved and additions will be made in due course.

Thank you to all submitting CPD. Submissions for 2022 have been received with some subject to final administration. The list of EHOs holding Chartered EHO status will appear in a Journal later in the year. We would encourage use of the online system for the recording of CPD, within the members only section of the website, and remind you that entries can be made ‘as you go’ throughout the year, so would take minimal time to ‘submit’ at the end of the calendar year.  We would also remind Chartered EHOs that you can request to be placed on a list maintained by the Institute of professionals offering private work, which would be provided, should anyone approach the Institute for such names.
