To ensure the standard of teaching remains high and your knowledge remains relevant and up-to-date, Yoga Scotland operates a system for monitoring Continuous Professional Development (CPD) of which the Ongoing Training (OGT) scheme is a part. The system is based on retrospective self-certification for the 12-month period prior to insurance/membership renewal.
Teachers will be required to accrue 15 CPD points every year. Yoga Scotland runs fantastic Ongoing Training days for you to choose from (see below) so this shouldn't feel too onerous. Each OGT day is worth 7.5 points, so two OGT days per year will fulfill the requirements. Simple. And even better, as a Yoga Scotland member you receive a discount with each OGT training costing £40.
Further,British Wheel of Yoga In-Service Training (IST) days also count as equivalent OGT days, i.e., worth 7.5 points. Information about BWY In-Service Training events is available via BWY Scotland IST.
Teachers can also attend other training days which they feel would best further their continuing professional and personal development. These events are worth 1 point per hour.
In addition, teachers can undertake directed private study, which can count for a maximum of 5 points in any year but must involve at least 7.5 hours of private study.
Not a member of Yoga Scotland but would like to attend one of our Ongoing Training days? Don't worry, all teachers are welcome to attend at a cost to non-members of £50.
