As a member of the CIPD you’re internationally recognised as a people professional at the forefront of knowledge and learning, a status you maintain through your commitment to continuing professional development (CPD).
This commitment reflects positively on you as an individual member, the organisation you work for or with, and the profession as a whole. It’s a commitment that contributes to the reputation of the people profession.
Take ownership of your professional development
CPD is the learning experiences which help you develop and improve your professional practice. Your ongoing professional development doesn’t come just from formal or course-based learning, it comes from anything that helps you to develop and improve your practice. It could be learning from:
• a conversation with a colleague,
• doing a new piece of work,
• working in a new team,
• reading something on LinkedIn,
• listening to a podcast,
• reflecting on the last few months of your work.
