    Vets and vet nurses can now build individual CPD programmes to match every stage of their career and expertise, thanks to the British Small Animal Veterinary Association (BSAVA).

    For the first time, a rolling schedule of three proficiency ‘steps’ will be introduced to allow veterinary professionals to choose the most appropriate level and interest area of CPD training.

    Alongside the clinical training, there are opportunities to develop a wider range of skills, including management and leadership, team building and dispensing.
    • ‘First steps in…’ courses focus on new or recent graduates, or those new to small animal practice.
    • ‘Developing confidence in…’ courses are intended for vet surgeons with existing baseline knowledge and experience in the subject area, who wish to gain further confidence, refresh and develop their skills or return to practice after a career break.
    • ‘Enhancing proficiency in…’ courses are for vet surgeons working towards or at the level of advanced practitioner, perhaps wishing to consider recent advances and refine application of these skills in practice.

    BSAVA Academic Director Frances Barr said: “One of the biggest issues for veterinary professionals has always been a lack of clear career structure, so this new rolling CPD programme addresses that with unprecedented, tailored and flexible support for all stages of an individual’s career, while allowing people to explore their own development pathway.

    “BSAVA is here to help right from the start, from students through to taking the first steps into practice and trying something for the first time, to progressing to an advanced level and honing your expert skills, to building skills as a team or gaining valuable insight on the latest advances in an area, or even returning to practice after a career break.”
    Derek Attride, BSAVA Education Committee Chair, said: “The new rolling programme allows you to plan your CPD over several years, so you can aim to progress up the levels as your skill and confidence develop. Practices can plan CPD for all their staff and as courses are run at every stage each year, minimal disruption is caused to the running of the practice.”

    Marina Crockford, BSAVA Education Committee said: “Often day courses attempt to be ‘all things to all vets’, starting at the ground level of a subject and building up through the day to recent advances and more in-depth coverage near to ‘going home’ time, so it is great to see BSAVA acknowledging the needs of the more experienced veterinary surgeon by offering the new ‘Enhancing Proficiency in….’ day courses from next year.

    “To have days dedicated to each level should allow everyone to pitch their CPD attendance at a level that is appropriate for their needs, making BSAVA the ‘go to’ provider for veterinary CPD needs at all stages of our careers.”

    The rolling CPD training will start in 2018 and while topic titles will change each year, the level of skills and experience courses are aimed at will stay the same. More information is available from: www.bsava.com/education

    The BSAVA also offers a broad range of education resources for all stages of professional and career development, including the PDP resource bank - a free online library of CPD support matched directly to the RCVS PDP competences, and professional key skills CPD - intended particularly for those working towards advanced practitioner level. The Masters in Clinical Veterinary Research is the most recent addition to the BSAVA portfolio of accredited courses, and offers practitioners the opportunity and support to undertake clinical research projects in their practices.
