CPD Overview

Continuing  Professional Development (CPD) is the process through which qualified AASW members maintain, improve and broaden their skills, knowledge and expertise for professional practice. CPD is an ongoing process throughout a career informed by the changing practice environment, professional domains, new research and community need.

AASW Members are responsible for their own professional development in accordance with the AASW CPD Policy. Requirements may be met through participation in CPD activities provided by the AASW and/or external providers. To record a professional development activity towards a CPD goal, members are required to ensure the activity is relevant to them and is consistent with the categories defined in the CPD Policy. For details of CPD goals and further information about CPD please refer to the CPD Policy and the FAQs.

AASW Members are now able to access Category 2 Professional Development in the form of on-demand, live workshops and webinars and events at up to 50% discount of the non-member price.

Complimentary CPD

Throughout the 2024/25 timeframe, AASW members will have access to complimentary CPD valued at up to $1000 as part of their membership benefits. Every quarter, a fresh selection of complimentary CPD opportunities is carefully curated from our On Demand Learning catalogue and showcased in the member newsletter.

For instance, during the 2023/2024 period, members received 10 titles from Category 2 of AASW’s On Demand Learning catalogue (averaging 1 hour per title, totalling 10 hours of Category 2 CPD, valued at approximately $50 each). Moreover, an extensive range of resources is accessible at no cost within the Practice Suites section under Category 3.
