CPD Opportunities

The College and partners organised some exciting one-off CPD activities for CPD week and we will continue to advertise any new opportunities.  Please note that line manager approval is required.

CPD does not have to be time-consuming or costly and can be part of our daily work. National CPD week was about individuals making the most of the development opportunities available to them and finding time to reflect on their own practice and performance. Why not make CPD part of your weekly routine?

Remember, the College's new CPD Framework, CPD Toolkit and CPD Templates can support you in identifying and reflecting on your CPD activities.
