PNBA Guidance on changes to CPD requirements for established practitioners

Dear PNBA Member,

As you will know, the CPD rules for established practitioners are changing from 1 January 2017. Following attendance at BSB “roadshow events” and after consideration of the BSB’s published guidance and suggested materials, a PNBA sub-committee has prepared a number of materials which it is hoped will help you in getting to grips with the new changes. These materials may be found below:

The Bar Standards Board has very recently published materials of its own on its website, including guidance, sample compliant plans, FAQs and a template plan of its own. It is recommended that you refer to those materials in addition and you are, of course free to use, for instance, the BSB’s template plan (no particular format is prescribed by the rules). It is however hoped that you will derive further assistance from the PNBA materials, which have been assembled with members specifically in mind.
