Important changes to CPD for Accredited Providers

We wrote to our 400 Accredited CPD Providers in October to remind them that our CPD Provider Accreditation scheme, under which CPD Providers are authorised, ceases to exist after 31 December 2016. On 21 November we held a related workshop which more than 50 of those providers were able to attend.

For further details and for changes to the monitoring arrangements for the current scheme please see our website or email CPDAccreditation@BarStandardsBoard.org.uk.

Did you know that from 1 January 2017 authorship and editing of published works of a professional nature can now count as CPD?

 This could include:

  • exam papers;
  • law reform proposals;
  • professional updating of relevant e-zines / blogs; and
  • substantial consultation responses.
