CPD (Continuing Professional Development) refers to the process of tracking and documenting skills, knowledge and experience beyond initial training. You gain these, formally and informally, as you work.
CPD ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become outdated or obsolete. It allows individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.
It’s a record of what you experience, learn and then apply.
