Why you should use the Staffroom to support your CPD?

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training. It’s a record of what you experience, learn and then apply.

What is CPD for?

The CPD process helps you manage your own development on an ongoing basis. It’s function is to help you record, review and reflect on what you learn. It’s not a tick-box document recording the training you have completed. It’s much broader and more important than that.

The key features of the CPD process

To justify the name, CPD needs to:

• be a documented process
• be self-directed: driven by you, not your employer
• focus on learning from experience, reflective learning and review
• help you set development goals and objectives
• include both formal and informal learning.
