Module overview

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a professional requirement that facilitates your development as a Clinical Psychologist and allows the maintenance of a registration with the HCPC. The Specialist Skills module requires that you plan an individualised programme of study tailored to your specific requirements using a professional CPD plan (e.g., BPS or HCPC). Using your personalised CPD plan, this module is designed so that you can acquire specialist skills in the area/s in which you plan develop your knowledge and skills (e.g., leadership, supervision, CBT, systemic etc..). The development of knowledge and skills can comprise varied methods with the requirement to complete a CPD log and reflect on the learning experience throughout the application of learning.
