The General Optical Council (GOC) has published a Reflective Exercise Guidance Template that needs to be completed before the end of the 2022-24 Continuing Professional Development (CPD) cycle.

The reflective exercise is where registrants reflect on their personal development during the current cycle through a discussion with a peer which they must document. It should take place towards the end of the current cycle once all or most CPD requirements have been met. The form to document details of the discussion will go live on MyCPD from July 2024.

The Guidance Template outlines: 

  • what registrants will need to discuss and document on MyCPD as part of the reflective exercise. This includes a reflection of CPD activity to date, how learning outcomes have changed throughout the cycle, and any planned learning outcomes for the remainder of this and the next cycle;  
  • other information that will need to be documented on MyCPD including the date the discussion took place, where it took place, and peer details; and 
  • further advice to help registrants with all of the above.
