We really want you to tell us about the great CPD you've been doing, so our approach in reviewing your CPD is simple. Our reflective CPD questions will enable you to highlight how you've kept your skills and knowledge up to date. We don't have differing requirements for different membership grades or levels of experience. We want you to showcase how proactive you have been in managing your learning and the impact it has had on you and your organisation.

Do I need to provide evidence of my CPD?

As a CIPD member, you are required to demonstrate your commitment to CPD and can be asked to submit evidence of this. So, we’d encourage you to keep a record of your CPD.

Our CIPD Code of Professional Conduct, reinforces this stating that ‘maintaining professional knowledge and competence’ is a fundamental requirement of membership.

We want to support you with your professional development, so completing the CPD reflective questions will show how you’ve maintained and developed your CPD, and enable you to identify and plan future learning.

How do you select which members have to submit their CPD?

Each year, we contact a random sample of members and ask them to provide evidence of their CPD from the past 12 months.

How do I submit my CPD?

If selected, we'll contact you and ask you to complete a set of reflective CPD questions, which will need to be submitted within 30 days of our request.

If you're not selected to submit your CPD but would like to showcase the great CPD you've done over the past 12 months, you can voluntarily complete and submit the reflective CPD questions by downloading a copy below and sending them to cpdreview@cipd.co.uk.

What happens next?

Within six weeks of your CPD being submitted, we’ll email you to confirm the outcome of your CPD review and your membership record will be updated confirming you’ve submitted your CPD.
