In-house training

CCLC also offers training delivered in house and tailored to the needs of your organisation. For further information about training and to discuss your training needs, please contact the Migrant Children's Project on 020 7713 2028 or at mcp@coramclc.org.uk.

Proof of attendance and CPD

You may be able to count our training towards your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements. At the end of each course we provide all participants with a certificate of attendance, which can be used to evidence your learning for your regulatory body (such as the Health and Care Professions Council for social workers in England). We also keep a signed register. If at any stage you require confirmation of past attendance, please email mcp@coramclc.org.uk.

For advisers regulated by the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC):
OISC CPD requirements changed on 12 July 2016. Course providers and courses no longer have to be recognised by CPD accrediting bodies, and OISC advisers are now free to choose who delivers their CPD without restrictions. For more information on these changes, see the OISC press release, here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/changes-to-the-oiscs-cpd-scheme

Previously, non-core CPD hours could be claimed for our courses. You could claim one hour of CPD for each hour of learning (excluding breaks). 

For solicitors:
The Solicitors Regulation Authority is changing its approach to CPD requirements for solicitors. More information is available on the SRA website. From 1 November 2014, the SRA ceased to accredit training providers. This means that any training can be used to demonstrate learning and development for continuing competence.

For barristers:
Barristers are welcome to attend, but our training is not currently accredited by the Bar Standards Board.
