7. Link to Appraisal

7.1. It is envisaged that individuals who are in good standing with the College with regard to CPD will not have to provide further detailed evidence of CPD at appraisal unless requested by their appraiser. It is important therefore that the peer group has a robust system in place for approving and monitoring CPD activity in order that the College and appraisers can be assured of the quality of the information contained in the returns.
