Today marks the first day of the new competency year and one year since the changes to CPD became compulsory. All solicitors in England and Wales need to ensure that they have reflected on their practice and that they have addressed any identified learning needs. The SRA also requires solicitors and firms to make an annual declaration that they have done so.

What should you do if you have not yet dealt with a learning need?

To help users of the VinciWorks Continuing Competence Module organise their current learning needs, we’ve rolled-over all deferred needs from last year to this new year.

We have also added the ability bring any need from previous years to the new year. You can easily do this by hovering over a need and clicking “Copy to Current Year” to bring it over to this year.

You can also still access last year’s training record to review what you have learned or add any details.

If you have any questions regarding continuing competence or how to maintain learning and development records going into the new competence year, feel free to reach out to us using the details below.
