What is CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is often used to describe the learning activities that professionals engage in to develop and enhance abilities. CPD can consist of a number of different learning methodologies such as training workshops; conferences and events; e-learning programs; best practice techniques and ideas sharing. These are all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development. Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.
