VetEd points table

CPD activities can be either structured or unstructured, and grouped into face-to-face or written/distance learning. Structured activities tend to be organised by a CPD provider, with a defined purpose and duration, e.g. conferences, courses or workshops. Unstructured activities are less formally defined, e.g. reading a journal or mentoring.
