Advised by who? Its your personal development and YOU are responsible for it - nothing to do with IFL. You should identify implicit CPD for your own development perhaps of your skills and subject knowledge - A course, shadowing, work placement, even an on line tutorial, reading articles or a visit to something related to your subjetc - Like an Art teacher visiting the Tate at the weekend for example. You should also identify training opportunities that are directly related to the workplace, although these will of course overlap with the implict CPD. Like your induction, equal opportunities, moderating, exam board presentations, H+S, etc. You have to do 30 hours CPD and log it over the year - you don't have to log all the details with the IfL - but while the IfL is still in existance all you have to do with them is just provide a list of what 30 hours CPD you did over the year. Thats the only time you really need to have anything to do with the IfL apart from when they demand their £65 fee that about 75% of members are unlikely to pay this year as the membership think it is useless NuLabour waste of money and should go on the ConDem quango bonfire with the GTC. Hopefully this pointles organisation will soon be scrapped by the democratic choice of its membership and your CPD record will just be a matter between you and your employer.
