When you need to provide evidence of CPD activity 

Annual Statement - evidence not required

While we recommend that you add supporting evidence to your ePortfolio, you do not need to upload documents before we generate your Annual Statement. 

Your statement will not show whether evidence has been attached to forms in ePortfolio.

Annual Verification Process: evidence is required

Evidence is required for the Annual Verification Process (AVP) carried out by your training body, so you should always make sure to collect your evidence and keep it in a safe place. If you are selected for the 2021-2022 AVP later this year, you will be given sufficient notice so that you can upload your documents. Support will also be available from the Professional Competence team.

You can download guides to the type of evidence you should use through these links:

 Evidence for External CPD - Evidence for Internal CPD  - Evidence for Research or Teaching


When you add evidence to your ePortfolio, best practice is to open the associated form in Kaizen and use the attachment tool available at the bottom of the form.  This will link your CPD claim to the relevant  document.
