Take part in our survey – Quality Mark Scheme for CPD Providers

We want your views on the validity of our proposed Quality Mark Scheme for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Providers before 25 September. The scheme is due to start in January 2017.

This important research will help us to find out if you would benefit from such a scheme - and the key elements we need to build into its design.

We are keen to develop a Quality Mark Scheme that acts as a valuable tool from which you may source relevant, high quality CPD training. So we have created a short survey for all practising barristers.

We believe the survey will help us to understand:

  • how you select your CPD training; and
  • what factors influence your decisions in relation to CPD.

The survey is separate from our open consultation on the overarching CPD reform. But it is important to consider the Quality Mark Scheme proposal in the context of the proposed new CPD requirements.

The proposals are part of our Future Bar Training programme.

Read about the proposed changes to the CPD requirements in our open consultation (ending 2 September).

Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey. Please respond by 5.00pm on Friday 25 September 2015.
