RCVS launches new digital learning platform
The RCVS has created the platform in response to changing learning needs.
The RCVS Academy has been built to support professional development.

The RCVS has launched a new digital learning platform to support veterinary professionals in their career development and help them meet professional standards.

Created in partnership with members of the veterinary professions, the new RCVS Academy also promises to help vets stay up to date with the latest professional developments.

The platform provides learning resources - including video, activities and reflective practice - for every career stage, including graduates and registrants. Courses currently available include:
  • leadership and coaching
  • working in the UK
  • ownership and consent
  • resolving complaints
  • CPD recording and reflecting.

RCVS chief executive Lizzie Lockett, said: “We’re aware of the pressures that veterinary professions are facing and the Academy has been built to respond to changing learning needs.

“The learning resources available on the platform have been designed to help vet teams develop their understanding of the RCVS professional guidelines and also how they can apply them in their everyday role. 

“We will continue to collaborate with the professions on new courses and resources for the RCVS Academy to ensure that we continue to support them for the benefit of their patients, clients and team.”

Courses completed through the platform count towards annual RCVS CPD requirements, and users can add learning hours to their 1CPD account through the RCVS Academy or by scanning a QR code.

Views sought on NOAH Compendium

Users of the National Office of Animal Health (NOAH) Compendium app and website are being asked to share their views on how it can be improved.

In a new survey, users are asked about some suggested future developments, such as notifications for new and updated datasheets, sharing links to datasheets, and enhanced search functionality.

It comes after NOAH ceased publication of the NOAH Compendium book as part of its sustainability and environmental commitments. The website and the app will now be the main routes to access datasheets and view any changes.
