CPD Endorsement


Social Care Ireland endorse courses/events as relevant to the continuing professional development needs of Social Care Workers. Social Care Ireland recognises that the learning outcomes achieved will differ for each individual practitioner dependant on their individual experience and/or prior learning. Therefore, Social Care Ireland, in line with statutory requirements for registration, encourages Social Care Workers to reflect on their own individual learning from each CPD activity and consider how this learning has impacted their work practice to determine assignment of CPD credits to events/courses.

A non-refundable fee applies to process external courses/events endorsement applications. See Application Guidelines for Recognition and Endorsement of CPD Events/Courses for External Providers for further details on costs associated.
