Why partake in Continuing Professional Development (CPD)? 

CPD is a fundamental part of any career – ensuring ‘professionally registered and active’ professionals keep up to date by constantly learning and improving, to develop skills and stay at the cutting edge.  

In a fast-moving world, CPD supports you both to work safely, legally and effectively. It also shows you’re committed to lifelong learning and is a way of demonstrating professional pride in what you do.  

Not only will CPD aid your contribution to your field of expertise, but it’ll help you get the most out of your career and enable you to make lives better.
