Good morning 

 

Could somebody possibly give me some examples of CPD points, how they are earnt and what one point is equivalent to. My membership is up for renewal in September and I need to update my CPD points section. 

Currently it is showing as zero however I attended the last 2 day conference, have nearly finished my self assessment course and am about to sit my payroll exam. 

What do you use for the unstructured? 

 

Many thanks

Hi Natasha

Currently you need to achieve 30 CPD points in the year of your membership. 15 structured and 15 unstructured. 

You earn 1 CPD point for 1 hour of structured CPD and 1/2 point for 1 hour of unstructured CPD. Structured points are earned for things like attending Branch meetings, external training, open learning courses and achieving ICB qualifications as well as for attending the Summit and Inspire Tour.

 

Unstructured points are earned for reading articles, developing or editing a website, preparing presentations or taking on a new project in employment.

 

Basically, if you can upload proof of acheivement (for example receiving an email thanking you for attending something like a HMRC Talking Points webinar) then you have taken part in structured CPD.

During this year points for attending Branch meetings are automatically added to your CPD portal.

 

Further details and full information can be found under the Membership/Development tab on the ICB website.

I agree with Caryls reply and I have found it relatively easy to achieve my 30 points, however I am unsure on it webinars are treated as structured or unstructured points, can anyone clarify this?

 Hi Lesley

I am finding it difficult to find clear information on how many points you get for passing exams or attending branch meetings but you do get 1 point per hour of structured CTD.  I believe when you pass an exam the points are automatically added for you.   Maybe ICB could help with this question?

Hi Everyone, 

Caryl is correct. Anything that you can support with documentation or confirmation of attedance, counts towards structured CPD.  A 1 hour webinar hosted by ICB or it's accredited partners counts as 1 structured CPD point. For other webinars, as long as you have something to confirm your attendance, you should be all good.

Core exams (Level II and Level III) do not count towards CPD, however Level IV qualifications and certain software certifications do count towards CPD - the amount of CPD you get for these, depends on the qualification you are working towards.

@Natasha, you should have been awarded your CPD from the last conference so we will look into why that isn't appearing on your account. You will need to add your additional qualifications separately.

Look out in the next newsletter for a more detailed response on this - we hope to relieve all your CPD woes!
