Social work practitioners who are still unsure about what they need to do to remain on the Health and Care Professions Council’s (HCPC) register, can benefit from an exclusive online discussion which will take place on Tuesday, 21st October at 6.30pm. 

The session will help social workers understand how to choose the right Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities, how they can put their learning into practice and what they need to do to show evidence to meet the HCPC’s standards.  It will also give social workers the opportunity to share best practice ideas, take advice from fellow professionals and put questions towards a panel of experts. What’s more, the session can also be counted as a CPD activity!

This will be our second online discussion focusing on the importance of CPD; in August we hosted our first session which proved to be extremely popular, with social workers commenting:

“What a fantastic and informative forum. The forum answered all my questions, and reduced my anxieties around evidencing my CPD.” Corinne Atkin, Social Worker

“More of these need to go round, this certainly made my anxieties more manageable re-CPD and registration as a NQSW with no permanent role or a reasonable post-qualification time” Sophia Sebbi, Newly Qualified Social Worker

“It was helpful, I was able to reflect on key points that I learnt about CPD at the University. Considering the responses from the forum, I am going to obtain a CPD folder in order to make it habit of logging CPD activities on a regular basis until the time comes when I qualify to be selected for auditing.” Social Worker 



The HCPC require all social workers to maintain a comprehensive record of any CPD activities that are undertaken, and demonstrate how they have led to effective practice. With registration renewals due by the 1st December, it is important for practitioners to make sure that their CPD profile is up-to-date, as the HCPC will be auditing 2.5% of all social workers to check that standards are being met. 

You can read more about what the HCPC are looking for in the July-September issue of Sanctuary Social Work News, featuring an exclusive interview with Robert Templeton, Council Member of the HCPC. 

Alternatively you can catch the replay of the first online discussion or read our extended Q&A page to find out more information.
