The LI will begin its next Continuing Professional Development (CPD) review on Monday 23 January. This monitoring will cover the CPD undertaken by members throughout 2016.

The  requires all corporate members to complete a minimum of 25 hours of CPD per year, and the LI has a duty to monitor compliance through annual CPD monitoring. 3% of corporate members are selected at random and asked to submit their CPD record.

CPD is a structured process of learning and reflection. It helps individuals look ahead to their own development requirements, often in line with their appraisals and professional ambitions. By understanding their learning and development needs, members can identify specific ways to meet them; this helps them to keep pace with the evolution of the profession, remain up-to-date with new approaches and ideas, and ensure consistent best practice throughout their careers.

In advance of the next monitoring period, members should be aware of the new standardised disciplinary process for CPD noncompliance. For a full overview of our CPD monitoring and conduct procedures and CPD policy, . (Login required.)

CPD comes in many forms, not just events and training courses, and the LI offers a range of opportunities to support members with their professional development.
