CPD diary migration

The current e-Portfolio will be decommissioned at the end of June 2024. The new, off-the-shelf platform, due to launch in August 2024, is technically unable to support the CPD diary in the same manner.

The new ePortfolio will emphasise the shift from counting points to self-evaluation and the quality of reflective notes.  You will still be able to document your CPD activities and keep track of your points. The new CPD diary will stop following rolling five-year cycles.  In addition, it will not ‘lock’ itself at any point.

Please be aware that the new ePortfolio will not generate certificates for annual appraisals. If you need CPD certificates to meet your local appraisal requirements, you should exploring alternatives.  Check whether your employer’s local appraisal and revalidation policies require use of a specific recording tool.

When using the learning platform INSPIRE, you can record when some learning has been undertaken in a particular course, and this will then appear in your INSPIRE CPD log.  You can download this and add it to your trust appraisal portfolio.
