Focusing on CPD as an Independent
Working as an independent, consultant, freelancer or sole trader can be a juggling act between servicing the needs of our clients and taking time out for ourselves to focus on our own CPD, learning and development. Come along to this interactive session on Continued Professional Development (CPD) as an Independent. In this session we will be focusing on the importance of CPD, having a look at the new CIPD resources that have been recently published on the CIPD website. We will be opening up the discussion to ‘share’ our knowledge, insights and experiences of managing CPD as an individual, which according to the CIPD’s ‘7 step CPD Cycle’ is a valuable tool and part of effective CPD. If you have developed a way of prioritising or organising your own CPD – or if you have an example of what works for you - and are willing to share it please let us know and we will give you the opportunity to share this with the group. There will also be time at the end of the session for recommending any books or resources in relation to CPD that you may have found useful, so please bring anything along that you would like to share.
This event is free of charge for CIPD members, although booking is essential. There is a charge of £25 for non-members . (please note that refunds will not be issued less than 10 days prior to this event).
