This year, all speech and language therapists are required to renew their registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) by 30 September 2017 at 6 pm, with renewal opening tomorrow (1 July 2017). 




If you decide to renew using a paper renewal form, keep in mind that it takes up to 10 days for the paper to be printed and dispatched to your home since it cannot be emailed.

What’s new from the HCPC?


The HCPC recently published an updated guide on ‘Continuing professional development and your registration,’ so it may be helpful to have a look at it here. Some of our resources that we discuss below can help you as well.

We can help you organise your CPD log


To assist you in organising CPD activity, we have created a downloadable guide on preparing your CPD profile that includes a CPD activity log.

Three benefits of using our guide:

1) It helps you organise activity by dates


All of your professional development activities should be in order by date and you want to make sure you provide explanations for gaps in your work. Our guide provides you with a format that works well for this.

2) It gives you a variety of activity examples that you can reflect on


You want to give a couple examples (4 to 6) and make sure they cover a broad range of work that you have done and apply them back to the standards of proficiency. That way, you can be sure that your information is relevant to the CPD and that your renewal goes smoothly. 

You also want to make sure that you provide evidence for your work. This may include case conferences and other methods of review; proof of training; presentations; or evidence of research and conclusions.

3) It provides you with 5 useful tips for preparing your CPD profile


You want your CPD profile to be the best it can be and we want to help you! If you can prove that your work is relevant, useful and beneficial you should be fine!

We also have online training available that you can include in your CPD activity.


Educational activities stand out in a CPD, and although we are still growing and adding courses for specific fields, we have main online training courses that are skills-based, inexpensive and very easy to manage.

We want through our courses and found five that we feel would be beneficial for those who work in speech and language therapist jobs because of the HPCP standards of proficiency.

These courses include:
Effective Communication – for Health and Social Care (£12.00 including VAT)
Effective Communication with Children and Families (£12.00 including VAT)
Equality and Diversity – for Health and Social Care (£12.00 including VAT)
Handling Information – for Health and Social Care (£12.00 including VAT)
Human Need, Learning and Development (£12.00 including VAT)

We also have many other courses as well and occasionally we offer special courses so keep checking our website to stay updated.
