‘Continuing Competence’ the new CPD

As you are no doubt aware the SRA have changed the way in which continuing training of solicitors can be conducted from the 1st November 2016. From April 2015 firms have been able to plan their own training programs under the scheme known as ‘Continuing Competence’ 

The requirement for 16 hours CPD is no longer the case and as of 1st November 2016 firms will be required to develop their own programs of training relevant to the requirements for staff at each firm.
