New Year: new CPD regime

The new CPD regime for established practitioners comes into force on 1 January 2017 giving you more choice and greater flexibility in planning and undertaking your training.

In this special edition of Regulatory Update, we provide you with more information about the new CPD scheme, some helpful tips and guidance to help you comply with the new arrangements and links to further material on our website.

The CPD arrangements for those in their first three years of practice, who are on the New Practitioners Programme, are not changing save that CPD activities no longer need to be accredited. The BSB will be ceasing its CPD accreditation scheme on 31 December 2016.

We are also contacting all barristers about the new CPD regime individually. In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us for further advice and assistance.
