Changes to CPD Points

CPD Points allocation update:

We have recently made some changes to the allocation of CPD points for Workshops. We thought this would be a perfect time to remind you of the CPD point allocation system along with this change, in order to clarify how CPD points are allocated and the categories.

With the new Quality Training Portal (QTP) we can see many variations on the number of points allocated and ask all licensed Training Providers to check that the correct points have been awarded (this is not necessary for Single Endorsements as the points have been set by the evaluator).  If you need to change the points listed you can do this on the QTP and submit for approval.  If you require new CPD point logos please contact endorsement@skillsactive.com.

Training Providers with an ‘Other’ licence can only run ‘Other’ training.

Other is for conferences, books (reading), seminars and master-classes.  These can last an hour  or more.  1 hour will give 1 CPD point, 2 hours will give 2 CPD points, 3 hours or more can only give the maximum of 3 CPD points.

Training Providers with a ‘Workshop’ licence can run ‘Other’ training and Workshops.

Workshops must be a minimum of 4 hours.  4 hours will give 4 CPD points, 5 hours will give 5 CPD point, 6 hours or more can only give the maximum of 6 CPD points.

Training Providers with a full ‘Course’ licence can run Other, Workshop and Course training.

Courses must be a minimum of 8 hours and require a formal assessment.  8 hours will give 8 CPD points; the points will then increase 1 CPD point for each hour up to the maximum of 16 CPD points.

We are happy to help you with any questions you have about Endorsement and CPD points.  If you would like to contact us please email endorsement@skillsactive.com or call 020 7632 2006.
