SSPS Professional Development Certificates

In 2018/19, the SDO will launch a new series of Professional Development Certificates. Certificates recognise attendance at Professional Development Workshops but require a shorter time commitment than the Edinburgh Award.  

Three levels of Certificate are available:  

Bronze: 12 hrs skills attendance, 3 hours reflection

Silver: 16 hrs attendance, 4 hours reflection 

Gold: 20 hrs attendance, 5 hours reflection 

Students must also submit a 500-word reflective summary of their skills development over the course of the Certificate.
