A key objective for The PDF is to drive up standards amongst professional deputies and those that work alongside them.
To that end we are initially rolling out training aimed at Grade D’s or those starting out in the Court of Protection. This will be followed later in 2023 / early 2024 by an ambitious and comprehensive accreditation programme aimed at all those working as Deputies and others within their team. More will follow in the coming months, but in the meantime, find out more about the Grade D Training below.
Grade D Training
The PDF Grade D Training is aimed at those just beginning their work in the Court of Protection. It aims to provide a good introduction to the things that are important, but not necessarily covered anywhere else. We have drawn from the experience of the PDF Working Group as well as external services to create the content and it will be free to all PDF Members.
The course is accessible via a link in the Resource Hub in the Members Area. Once registered, you will be able to complete the course in bitesize pieces, in your own time. The course includes questions as you go that will contribute to an overall pass score at the end and you will even have a certificate to download.
