What is the role of employers in continuing professional development?


We regulate individual health and care professionals and do not have any role in regulating employers. So, the CPD standards are a personal responsibility that all registrants have to meet to stay registered with us.

However, responsible employers will want to encourage their employees to learn and develop to make sure they stay on the Register. We communicate regularly with employers to make sure that they are aware of the standards and what they mean for their employees.
