HCPC Resources

Resources to support your HCPC registration, renewal, CPD and Fitness to Practice


Professional Guidance

Our professional guidance including our Code of Conduct and Guide to Good Professional Practice reflect HCPC standards and support you in meeting them.  



The IBMS CPD scheme enables you to show you have met HCPC CPD standards by providing a framework for recording your CPD activity.

Our CPD ePortfolio is designed so that you can easily download activities recorded in your ePortfolio in PDF and csv format to use as evidence for your HCPC CPD audit.

The categories are used in the IBMS CPD scheme reflect HCPC CPD categories, which makes it easier for you to use activities recorded in your IBMS CPD ePortfolio as evidence that you have met HCPC CPD standards.

We have included headings under the reflective notes section for each CPD activity you record to enable you to show how your CPD meets the HCPC standards, including:

• What learning did you undertake?
• Explain what you learned or achieved
• How have you applied this in your day-to-day practice?
• How could this benefit the service user?
