British Psychological Society (BPS)Mandatory
The BPS recommends that members undertake 1/2 to 1 day of CPD a month.
The Health and Care Professions Council by law requires psychologists registered with the HPC to keep a continuous, up-to-date and accurate record of a variety of CPD activities. These activities must contribute to the quality of their practice and service delivery and benefit their service users.
The BPS provides support to help psychologists registered with the HCPC to meet the latter’s requirements. In addition, the Society requires its members to actively engage in CPD, to keep a record of their CPD activities and to apply learning from CPD to their professional practice.
