Stay at home video series

As most of our members are currently at home and online,
we have developed a new way to support you through this challenging time.

We have collaborated with our fantastic accredited course providers and event speakers to put together a ‘stay at home' video series to provide you with a free source of CPD.  

Please take a look through our videos below, you can watch the video, complete the activity document and award yourself the allocated CPD points. You can keep track of your points by downloading our CPD log. We would suggest picking videos which you feel would benefit you within your therapies.

Once you have completed the activities which interest you, please do pop back as the series will be added to regularly.

Please note: the 'stay at home' videos are CPD introductions only and are not to teach insurable hands on skills.
