Education and Resources

We provide educational materials and resources that are specifically designed to meet the needs of new consultants, covering a range of topics from career options, appraisals, business development, management and more.


Our online CPD sessions run regularly throughout the Spring and Summer months. You will receive a faculty CPD certificate once you have returned your complete feedback form. The sessions will be recorded and will be posted on our resources page. We plan to hold specific new consultant educational offerings at Faculty conferences and events.
