Continual Professional Development
Continual professional development, or CPD, is an integral part of your career progression. It consists of a range of activities that you’ll go through as your grow and develop in your job. To track your progress, you will need to keep a record of your CPD points.
A common question is, “what are CPD points? You’ll probably be required to keep a track of the CPD training you complete. Even if it’s not necessary, it will boost your CV and help you when negotiating a pay rise.
The importance of CPD is well recognised. In 2019, the UK government offered £1,000 each to nurses to invest in their ongoing training.
CPD course certification is a way of assigning value to the continual personal development that you undertake. Every CPD course that you take should come with a points value assigned.
The points for each course are calculated based on the time it should take to complete – one hour of learning is worth one CPD point. Employers and professional associations will have different needs for your CPD points so be sure you confirm what you need from them.
Keeping a record of your CPD in a logbook or portfolio will mean you don’t have to try to remember everything over the years. It’s a way of you tracking your own development and path towards achieving your goals – you will quickly be able to see how far you’ve come in your professional development.
