8. Evaluate (Ongoing)

The Transparent Accreditation Process (T.A.P) means all courses are subject to ongoing evaluation by the people who enjoy them. We believe this offers a more robust and trustworthy process than assessments being made prior to a course being delivered. This not only saves clients thousands but also gives them real feedback in real time. Consumers can also use this information to make informed decisions.

The Standards...

Our Internationally agreed standards have been carefully crafted after consultations, focus groups and surveys across sectors and countries. Standards chosen by experts and integrated into the fabric of MyCPDGroup.

Expert Knowledge

Trainers should hold relevant qualification and have experience within the sector they are delivering training in. Training should be evidence based and provide attendees with a deeper knowledge and understanding of the subject matter.


Training should have clear outcomes, objectives and/or expectations. Trainers should work towards completing these objectives during the activity and allow opportunities for reflection against these outcomes.

Inclusive & Accessible

Training should be inclusive and accessible to all. Consideration should be taken as to how learners with additional requirements can be supported, including the ability to consume content flexibly and without barriers.


Evidence shows that CPD that is actionable is most likely to have an impact. Providers should consider opportunities to offer practical demonstrations, actionable steps, ideas, techniques and/or gap task to support implementation.


Training should NOT be passive. Both in-person and online training should be engaging and enjoyable. Sessions should be interesting for the persons attending and consideration should be given to how 'active learning' can be promoted.


Peer interaction is an important part of the learning process. Where appropriate, training should provide opportunities for collaboration and discussion as well as facilitating connection beyond the event.


Training should be clearly structured, easy to navigate and provide suitable signposting where appropriate. The pace of the session should be reviewed and all learning styles should be considered.


All training should be appropriate, taking into account updated and relevant changes to policies, guidance, processes or equipment. Product descriptions should provide adequate guidance on content as well as clear time commitments.


Attendees should feel valued and supported. Trainers should be accessible and approachable. Support can also come in the form of supportive materials, templates or worksheets as well as carefully chosen links and references.
