CPD and How To Make It Work For You

January 09, 2018

Why CPD?

Continuing professional development also known as CPD refers to the process of documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work, beyond any initial training or qualifications. It can be critical for both employees and employers because it manages the development of staff on an ongoing basis.
 
The benefits of CPD can be seen from two perspectives. From the perspective of the employee and that of the employer.
 
For employees, CPD maybe be a requirement for membership of a professional body. Such as if you are in the accounting or legal fields. However, almost all career paths have some form of CPD that employees must undertake. It may not be a requirement for your practising field but may be a requirement from your employer. Regardless if it’s required or not, it can be an essential ingredient to maintain or further your career. It ensures that the professional standard of your qualifications and registrations are maintained. Likewise, it can contribute to your professional sense of direction.
 
Sometimes the idea of doing extra training may seem like a drag, but not only will you learn new skills and get time away from your desk, it can also re-spark a creative interest in your work or help you identify where you want to go to next. It helps build your confidence in your ability to complete certain skills, allows you to showcase your achievements (great resume builder) and equips you with the confidence and tools to create positive change.

In more concrete terms, employees that can demonstrate they take a proactive approach to developing their skills and ability are more likely to land promotions and consequently earn higher salaries. Check out our full range of courses here
 
Employers can also derive direct benefits from CPD. One of the primary benefits is ensuring that standards across the company are high and consistent. CPD can also promote greater work engagement, boost employee morale, engagement and general commitment to job roles. It can maximise staff potential and could be used as a useful benchmark for annual appraisals. Generally, not only will your company or team productivity increase but you will also have generally happier staff. The more you invest in the development of your staff the more successful your business will become.
