If you click on this tab you can input a new learning need -; this might be an objective that you have set yourself to improve your knowledge in a particular area or it could be one of the PDP goals that you agreed with your appraiser at your last appraisal. To assign a particular module that you have completed as being relevant to that learning need, click ‘Assign to existing learning need’ alongside that module in the ‘My CPD activity’ tab.
You can export all the information included in your CPD dashboard into a spreadsheet or PDF, allowing you to easily save this for your records, or email it to your appraiser. To do this, scroll to the bottom of your CPD dashboard where you will see the export buttons.
