What is CPD?
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the means by which professionals maintain and enhance their knowledge and skills. The world is moving ever faster so on-going CPD is essential to support you in your current role as well as helping you with career progression. CPD is all about upgrading knowledge, skills and capabilities to remain effective and compliant.
You are already likely to be participating in learning activities which contribute towards your Continuing Professional Development without realising it. Almost everything that improves your knowledge and skills is considered as CPD. Use CIPS CPD to gain recognition for your learning.
If you see the CPD logo anywhere on the CIPS website this means that the activity counts towards your CPD. The number in the top right hand corner explains how many CPD hours that the activity is worth.
