Managing your Continuing Professional Development

COURSE OVERVIEW

Continuing Professional Development, or CPD, has become a fundamental requirement for the maintenance of professional registration for many professions across the world today.  Without demonstrating that you have engaged in CPD,  it can be difficult to remain registered, join a professional body or obtain insurance for a professional practice, whether in the medical professional, or as a legal or financial professional.

However, CPD goes far beyond the role of a compliance instrument. CPD is now highly regarded as a means, by which individuals can grow their careers, and achieve recognition for their continual learning. When structured and managed effectively, CPD becomes a methodology that organizations can use to promote continual business improvement. We define continuing professional development (CPD) as ‘a range of learning activities through which professionals continue to learn and develop throughout their careers so they keep their skills and knowledge up to date and are able to work safely, legally and effectively’.

In this course, we provide the guidance and tools to enable professionals to both plan their careers, and to develop personal professional development plans to help realise their career and lifestyle goals. In addition, we provide the tools, with which you can manage your professional development, and in particular through the use of a personal professional development portfolio (PDP).
