Trainee continuing professional development (TCPD) is structured learning undertaken over and above your trainee's office commitments, with a view to such learning assisting their achievement of the PEAT 2 outcomes.
Over the course of a traineeship, a trainee is required to undertake a minimum of 60 hours of TCPD. The points below outline what a trainee must do over the course of the traineeship. To find out more about any element of the TCPD please visit the frequently asked questions page.
It is possible for firms and organisations to offer TCPD to their own and/or other trainees. However, a relevant licence is required. A separate licence is needed to offer the mandatory ethics course. Futher information can be found in the TCPD FAQs for training providers section of the website.
To aid transition, the professional competence course can be deemed to be TCPD until 31 August 2013.
