CPD: What is Continuing Professional Development & How Can Billi Help?

What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a system which exists to assist you throughout the course of your career development. Ongoing attainment of professional knowledge, skills and experience contributes to a physical record, which reflects your progression within your field. As such, it is a continuous, self-directed process that helps you develop your repertoire of expertise, define your own goals and ultimately, enhance your professional performance.

Why is CPD so important?

Your education as a professional does not end once you are qualified. In order for you to excel in your profession, it is vital to continuously refresh knowledge and remain up to date with new developments in your field. This is crucial in order to deliver the highest standard of service to customers and society at large. Indeed, CPD is mandatory in some professions: in order to be a RIBA Chartered architect for example, you are required to undertake a minimum of 35 hours of CPD per year.

CPD does not just ensure that clients and employers can be confident of your skills; it is also beneficial to you as an individual. With the working world changing at an ever-faster rate, CPD ensures that professionals are not left behind. Ongoing learning and development means you can be aware of new innovations and changes in direction and leverage these to maximise your skills. CPD also boosts confidence and offers fresh perspectives to keep you interested, excited and engaged in your field. Meanwhile, relevant and contemporaneous industry knowledge opens up new opportunities, offering you the means to progress and advance.
