CPD Endorsement

AASW CPD Endorsement processes were updated in September 2019.

CPD Endorsement is a process whereby CPD activities are assessed against a set of criteria, to:

  • Provide social workers guidance as to which CPD activities might be appropriate for their professional development needs, by advertising the endorsed activities
  • Promote and encourage ongoing commitment to social work professional development.

CPD Endorsement may be requested by external providers of CPD activities, by following the application process below. Gaining endorsement for CPD activities allows external providers to promote their activities as being of a suitable for the professional development of social workers.

Once endorsed, an external CPD provider is authorised to use the trademarked ‘AASW Endorsed’ logo. The endorsed activity will be listed on the AASW CPD Events page.

Should you wish to advertise your event in one of our publications, either electronic or hard copy please visit the publications section of our website for further information.
