Professional Recognition and CPD

Engagement in CPD activities provides evidence to support applications for fellowship of the HEA and the requirement to remain in good standing.

Area of Activity 5: engage in CPD in subjects/disciplines and their pedagogy, incorporating research, scholarship and the evaluation of professional practice; other dimensions address Areas of Activity in your professional practice, core knowledge and professional values.

This is a generic dimension and you may find that the activity also evidences other areas of your practice. See Dimensions of the UKPSF  and the University’s Professional Recognition site for more details.

Remember to record your CPD throughout the year and use to inform your conversations at appraisal as you reflect on your contributions and plan for the forthcoming academic year.

The UK Quality Code for Higher Education (a brief guide) will also support you in developing your professional practice.
