Trainee CPD - updated 14 May

The Admissions Sub-Committee has agreed that all trainees due to qualify prior to 30 September are now required to complete 48 hours of TCPD, of which a minimum of 32 must be from an authorised provider and a maximum of 16 from a non-authorised provider. The Ethics course must be completed in full. If, for whatever reason, you cannot undertake the mandatory ethics course within months 9-15 of your traineeship please contact

Trainees who are qualifying before 30 September and who have already undertaken more than 48 hours of TCPD are deemed to have met the TCPD requirements.

Any trainees who are due to qualify before 30 September and who have not met the reduced requirements and, but for the shortfall in TCPD, would be in a position to discharge their traineeship, should – at the point of discharging their training contract – give the Society an undertaking, in a form to be prescribed, that they would complete the remaining hours of TCPD up to a total of 48 hours with the appropriate minimum of 32 hours from an authorised provider by the end of the practice year.

More information is available on our Coronavirus update webpage under the Trainees and Students section.
