CPD Approval Scheme

The CPD Approval Scheme is the Society’s model of approving programmes or events (including workshops, lectures, symposia and conferences), that meet our standards. It enables CPD providers, including Higher Education Institutions to have programmes or events that are of relevance to psychology and/or psychologists approved. This will include programmes that do not relate to the full standards for accreditation through partnership, but which may be of interest to qualified and aspiring psychologists.

Approved programmes or events may use the ‘CPD Approved’ logo. The logo is only to be used by programmes or events that are approved by the Society and must not be used by those that are not approved or are in the process of seeking approval. Approved programmes or events are approved for the purposes of continuing professional development.  

For more information on our standards or the approval process have a look at our CPD Approval Scheme document.
