CPD Requirements:

Each year members have to work towards 7-hours of CPD and 3-hours of Professional Peer Supervision® (PPS®).

The 7-hours of CPD comprises:

  • 5-hours of certified CPD (from events provided by one of the 4 main professional bodies: ADSHE, Patoss, BDA, Dyslexia Action).
  • 2-hours of CPD relevant to HEI work context (such as reflections, journal reviews, training on policies and procedures etc…)

Please note:  For members attending an ADSHE event, only ADSHE Accredited CPD can be counted towards their yearly 5-hours of certified CPD. Non-accredited CPD will count towards their work-context CPD.


These CPD hours need to be electronically logged annually and will be verified by ADSHE and your log needs to be updated before your membership renewal date each year.

These annual CPD hours form part of your ADSHE QA Portfolio submission due at the end of 3 years.
