www.derby.ac.ukEDUCATION,HEALTHANDSCIENCESWhat is CPD?Continued professional developmentMy take:“CPD consists of any educational activity whichhelps to maintain or develop knowledge,problem-solving, technical skills or professionalperformance standards to delivery better quality”
www.derby.ac.ukEDUCATION,HEALTHANDSCIENCESWhy is CPD important?• Employers require us to display & evidence:- Our skills are relevant- Our knowledge is up to date- We have an understanding of what the topicalissues are(or what is happening) in our chosenprofession- We are aware of future trends and issues(threats and opportunities)
www.derby.ac.ukEDUCATION,HEALTHANDSCIENCESQualifications are the beginning• Often just getting a qualification is only thebeginning. Post qualification learning is becomingmore significant across a range of professions.• Updating knowledge on a continuing basis isessential for successful delivery, credibility, careerprogression – especially in a time where the „jobfor life‟ has disappeared.

www.derby.ac.ukEDUCATION,HEALTHANDSCIENCESCPD includes formal activities, e.g. courses, conferencesand workshops, as well as self-directed activities such asmentoring, shadowing, engagement in online forums anddirected reading (almost anything – “with caution”).Importantly:We need to be able to demonstrate (or evidence) thatwe are improving relevant knowledge and skills in oursubject area (i.e., coaching, management) then itcounts!So what does count as CPD?
