Professional Development Days

Welcome to BACP's programme of Professional Development Days


BACP is delivering a new rolling programme of Professional Development Day (PDDs). The days have been designed to deliver valuable CPD opportunities with clearly defined learning outcomes that will develop practitioner skills in specified areas. The days are interactive to ensure that every delegate receives maximum individual benefit from attending. To achieve this, expert tutors have been selected to deliver each day and numbers at each event are limited to a maximum of 25.
