As the name suggests, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an ongoing process of making sure that professionals develop their knowledge and skills on an indefinite basis. CPD can take the form of both formal and informal development, and it is expected that professionals appropriately record Continuing Professional Development (CPD) so that they can produce evidence where requested.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) serves many purposes, and the following should provide you with a decent/clear idea of why professionals and employers take this very seriously.
Now that you understand all the great things about Continuing Professional Development (CPD), the next question would be to determine, “what counts as CPD?”. Below are some of the many ways you can undertake CPD. We will start off with informal ones, that are easier and often free to achieve, and then move on to more formal versions.
All of our different offerings – accredited courses, CPDs and training events– will count towards your Continuing Professional Development (CPD). If you are looking for a major upgrade of your profile so that you can excel in your career, or change career paths, then our accredited courses will provide you with that pathway.
If all you need is a regular updating of your knowledge and skills, for example, by acquiring additional knowledge in managing finance, then your best bet is to do our online auto-delivered and auto-marked CPD courses. These courses can be as short as a day- long course or even up to two weeks. Prices start from £10 per CPD course, and we offer bundles if you need unlimited access for either yourself or your team.
The most effective– and hence the costliest option– is to participate in our training events, where experienced industry experts will deliver training on pre-agreed and pre-announced contemporary topics. The group size will be small, so you will also be able to discuss your own specific needs and share your experiences with other delegates. This option also stands out for the simple fact that there are opportunities to build a network with other delegates coming from a diverse range of backgrounds.
