Ongoing Training

CPD for Yoga Teachers

 

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. Most OGT days are worth 7.5 points, so two OGT days per year will generally fulfill the requirements. Simple. And even better, as a Yoga Scotland member you receive a discount with each OGT training you buy.

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, other yoga teachers are welcome to attend. Non-member prices are displayed on each booking, and the correct price (member or non-member is automatically put in your shopping cart.)

Download our current OGT programme from this page and book via our contact form.

Download the CPD record form for 2018-2019 from the sidebar on this page. From September 2019, your CPD points will be recorded and accrued on your Yoga Scotland account. We will add your points to your account after you have attended one of our OGT sessions. If you do other types of CPD (such as a British Wheel course, personal self-study etc) you will need to complete the new short CPD record form in July 2020. This will be available to download here soon.

 

If finance is a barrier to you attending an OGT day that you think would enhance your practice and your teaching, please get in touch as financial help may be available.
