From 1 November 2016, you will no longer need to count CPD hours. Instead you should now reflect on the quality of your practice and identify any learning and development needs. You can then address these needs to make sure your knowledge and skills are up to date and that you are competent to practice.
Our toolkit provides useful information and resources to help you adopt this new approach to continuing competence. It is also helpful for firms or organisations that employ solicitors.
In the boxes below is practical advice on what you need to do to remain competent. It can guide you on how to:
- reflect on your practice and identify your learning and development needs
- plan how to address your needs and knowledge gaps
- record and evaluate your activities, including downloadable templates.
Now its up to you to use this information to help you structure, focus and address your learning and development needs.
