What should my continuing professional development profile for audit look like?


If we do pick you for audit, we will give you more information about what we need you to do, how and by when. This information includes information about the reasonable adjustments we can put in place if you are disabled.

You can find out more in 'How to complete your Continuing Professional Development profile' guidance document and download sample CPD profiles for each profession.


The profile in summary


The profile has four parts.






Writing your statement


In your statement, you will be concentrating most on telling us how you meet standards three and four – how your CPD activities improve the quality of your work and benefit service users.

One way to complete your statement is to choose four to six CPD activities you have carried out and for each one describe:


You can choose to tell us about the activities which you think benefited you the most and for which you have some supporting evidence. Writing your statement in this way can be a clear and simple way of showing us how you have met the standards.

However, there is more than one way of completing your statement so this is only a suggestion. Other ways might include using your professional development plan or similar (if you have one) or structuring your statement around each of the CPD standards.
