How should I record my personal development plan (PDP)?

The BDA's CPD Hub provides a system of undertaking and recording verifiable CPD; it also includes a Word document PDP which is simple to use.


We do not provide an interactive PDP system as we believe that it is safer for members to keep in-depth reflective part of their CPD record separate from their PDP and log. The BDA prefers not to keep reflective details of members' personal development planning to ensure we avoid any danger of being asked to provide such information to third parties. We are aware that the chances of this are relatively small, but while ECPD is in its beginning phase, we will monitor how the GDC will exercise its right to view full CPD records (including implications for fitness-to-practise cases) in the future before we consider providing such products and holding such information.'
