The Learning centre is our new online learning platform to support you in your practice.
It’s home to a new content catalogue feature, so you can easily access content available to you based on your subscriptions. You can also benefit from a new online My CPD area, where you can plan, record, review and reflect on your CPD activities.
BACP members can use the Learning centre at no additional cost.
You'll need a current BACP membership subscription (Student, Individual, Registered, Registered - Accredited, Registered - Senior Accredited, Retired) to access the Learning centre.
Go to the Learning centre
We're aware our members are currently experiencing challenges with accessing the Learning centre. We're sorry for the difficulties and we’re working with our third party suppliers to fix the problem as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
Online learning catalogue
The Learning centre is the new home for our CPD hub subscriber resources and free member resources which will be increasing over the coming months.
Find out about content subscriptions you can add to your membership and access via the Learning centre.
The CPD hub has moved to the Learning centre. It currently contains over 200 hours of online presentations and resources on a variety of topics which you can use towards your CPD requirements. For £25 a year, you get access to the existing CPD hub resources, plus new content launched every month.
When you sign up, the CPD hub content will automatically appear in your Learning centre content catalogue.

Exploring suicidal risk with clients
Some of the content included in our learning resources may contain themes which could be triggering to you. Ensure you read the precis and learning outcomes of each resource before engaging with the content. Please be mindful of your response to the content and consider your own self-care and steps you can take to tend to your emotional and physical well-being.
More resources coming soon
We'll be adding more free member content and subscriber content to support your professional learning over the coming months.
My CPD aims to support registered members in meeting your membership commitment to plan, record, review and reflect on CPD activities in a structured way. The online tool replicates the original downloadable Mandatory CPD template (doc) and you can choose which option you’d prefer to use to track your CPD.
Like the original template, the My CPD tool is designed to encourage reflective practice and help you develop a cyclical process for your CPD. It provides sections for planning, recording your activities and reflecting on how these have affected your practice.
We also encourage student or individual members to use the My CPD tool, so that as you progress in your career and move to registered membership, you’re already familiar with the process and requirements.
With the online My CPD tool, you can:
- use the Plan your CPD area to identify, add and change learning themes you’d like to focus on in each membership year
- easily refer to your list of planned activities and browse the Learning centre content catalogue for related resources
- use the Log completed CPD area to record your completed CPD activities. (To make things easier, all content completed within the Learning centre catalogue is automatically recorded for you.)
- manually add activities completed outside of the Learning centre, such as events or reading
- if you’re selected for audit, use My CPD to easily submit your CPD records to us
