It is now easier to apply to join the scheme by participating in a series of online portfolio development workshops and there is a rolling programme of application enabling more practitioners to apply and gain registration when the time is right for them. Download an overview of the scheme.
The first step is to submit an Expression of Interest form. You will then receive updates and notifications from the scheme for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) opportunities and workshop dates.
Once you have attended one of the quarterly Information sessions, completed your self-assessment and gained the support of your line manager (Additional information for employers) – you can formally apply to join the scheme using the NW scheme application form.
