CPD Fortnight 2019

Running from 11 to 24 November, CPD Fortnight is now more accessible than ever before. We're working with forces across the country to offer continuing professional development (CPD) opportunities online, meaning you won't need to travel great distances to attend.

Flipped classrooms – participants will be sent a video to watch before the session. The event, delivered through Skype, will unpack and build on this.

Webinar: Leading and managing for wellbeing


​We know that policing is a high-trauma occupation and that we need to provide support for our people to help them to deal with the trauma that they will experience as part of their day jobs.  In addition, people working in policing tell us that actually the thing that causes them more stress than delivering policing, is poor management and leadership.  In this session, which is delivered by Fiona Meechan (Organisational Development Wellbeing Lead for the National Police Wellbeing Service), we will have a look at what we know about what kinds of leadership and management behaviours are needed in order to ensure that our staff feel valued and motivated in work – the things that help to facilitate a culture of wellbeing, where people can thrive.

How forces can participate in CPD Fortnight

If your force wants to participate in CPD Fortnight and might be able to offer development opportunities to police officers and staff, we want to hear from you!

Last year we worked with many forces and were able to offer a diverse range of opportunities, this year we want forces to share what they do best, offering national opportunities that provide an opportunity to share best practice.

Get in touch to discuss how your force can support CPD Fortnight and help everyone working in policing develop their skills: professionaldevelopment@college.pnn.police.uk   

All year round support for your development

You don't need to wait until CPD Fortnight to develop your skills. If you are brand new to CPD or looking for a quick reminder then see our Continuing Professional Development page. From there you can plan or reflect on your CPD using our toolkit and resources or upload CPD evidence to your Membership profile page. Members can gain free access to our mentoring scheme, where you will buddy up with a more senior or experienced police professional who will offer advice, guidance and discuss how you can improve in your current position or what needs to be done to grow and develop. 

Looking for role specific CPD? Have a look for your Policing Professional Profile for ideas on development activities you can undertake to help you to maintain and enhance your competence. Remember, CPD is about what you get out not how much you put in.
