Continuing professional development - developing your potential
Continuing professional development (CPD) is about developing your personal professional skills and knowledge. CPD should be proportionate and relevant to your role.
You will need to determine which activities will be most beneficial in meeting your learning and development needs. Fundamentally, CPD should be proportionate and relevant to your role. You may decide not to keep up-to-date with areas of the profession which are not directly relevant to you. Similarly, if you work part-time, on a voluntary basis or are retired, your CPD may not be extensive.
