CPD Matrix

The CPD Matrix is intended to be contextualised and interpreted in the light of individual requirements. In addition, the CPD Matrix should not be treated as a ‘tick-box’ exercise – it is not necessary to complete all of the topics during the five year revalidation cycle especially given the specialist and distinct nature of those in Level 3, but for the individual to demonstrate how their CPD has covered the topics relevant to all areas of their own professional practice.

This version which is dated October 2015 is the most recent edition - the table below shows changes which have been made to the CPD Matrix over the last few years:
