CPD for Social Care Workers

Social Care Workers Registration Board

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is one of the key mechanisms used to foster high standards of professional conduct and professional education, training and competence among registrants. 

The Social Care Workers Registration Board Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics (applicable upon registration) requires social care workers to keep their knowledge and skills up to date. CPD is a mechanism for maintaining registrant's professional knowledge and skills. 

The Social Care Workers Registration Board, following consultation with stakeholders in 2019, have approved the:

  • CPD Guidance Document that provides directions for registrants on the behaviours required to support compliance with your Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics
  • CPD Support Document that offers tools that can help you as a registrant to build and demonstrate those behaviours and ultimately meet your CPD requirements under your Code of Professional Conduct and Ethics.
