About the CPD Standards Office
The CPD Standards Office was established to raise Continuing Professional Development (CPD) standards by accrediting high-quality CPD provision. It is linked with universities and educational organisations, and works closely with professional bodies, institutes, and employers.
The CPD Standards Office criteria and processes are overseen by an independent advisory board of experts, drawn from academics, CPD professionals and employers. They implement the findings of the latest research into improving the standards and effectiveness of CPD.
