Your learning

New page for supporting your CPL

We’ve published new information on nationally recognised learning resources that we’ve endorsed, which you can use to support your continuous professional learning (CPL).

Our endorsement gives recognition to training and learning that supports the workforce to gain the specialist skills and knowledge required to carry out particular functions and approaches to practice

Our new web page Supporting your continuous professional learning highlights five learning resources we’ve worked on with national partners to support professional development of the social work, social care and early years workforce.

Skills and knowledge

All the resources highlighted have a different focus and anyone working in the sector can use them. Some of them have different levels and you can choose to work at the level most suited to your role.
Using the resources can help develop your understanding of your current role, support career progression and you can use your learning from them as evidence of towards meeting your CPL requirement.


The resources listed are:

  • National Joint Investigative Interviewing Training Programme
  • Equal Partners in Care
  • National Trauma Training Programme
  • Palliative and End of Life Care
  • Promoting Excellence for staff working with people with dementia, their families and carers.
