CPD Directory 2013
The CPD Directory is an online catalogue of CPD events, workshops and e-learning courses.
CPD Approval Scheme
The CPD Approval Scheme is the Society’s model of approving programmes or events that are offered by external providers that meet the Society's standards. It enables CPD providers to have programmes or events that are of relevance to psychology and/or psychologists approved.
For more information, go to the CPD Approval scheme page.
Our online system, myCPD, provides a structured framework for planning and recording CPD. Members can use the system to record their needs and activities, and print reports to meet CPD requirements of an employer or regulator, such as those of the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).
For more information, go to the myCPD page.
A number of online CPD modules are available for you to complete at your own pace from anywhere with internet access, whether that be your office, on a train or the comfort of your sofa, making them ideal for people who find it difficult to travel to events.
The modules have been designed to suit all learning styles and because they are done online it means you can spend 20 minutes or an hour working on them.
Take a look at our e-Learning section for more information and a list of available courses.
The BPS Learning Centre provides useful information and guidance on CPD and professional development.

Psychologists registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) will be required to maintain an ongoing record of their CPD in order to renew their registration. Further information on the HCPC CPD requirements can be found on their website.
