Welcome to the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) portfolio builder - advanced life support for ambulance service CPD. Whether you are just starting out with recording your CPD, or have an impending audit or appraisal, this website will help you get organised.
This CPD Portfolio Builder is completely free and totally awesome. You can sign in and register by either filling in the form or using the social media sign-in links.
CPD is not difficult, honest! It just requires a small time commitment (typically 1 to 2 hours a month) to generate some evidence and a portfolio entry. This website will provide you with the tools you need to create and organise entries for your portfolio and then export them in a range of formats.
If you are a paramedic, this website can assist you in creating your CPD profile for the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). In addition, if you are a member of staff in an NHS ambulance service, you can generate the evidence required for your Personal Development Review (PDR), including a Key Skills Framework (KSF) cross reference grid and Personal Development Plan (PDP).
Don't worry if many of these terms don't make much sense, everything is explained inside and best of all, it's free!
Need to keep track of the number and types of incidents you attend? What about keeping track of the number of hours you work? If you are a paramedic, you are likely to need to keep an airway log. You can use this site to keep track of everything you do and then summarise and export the results in a range of formats, depending on who needs to see what you've been up to.
