Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We want our staff to feel well supported in their professional lives. CPD comes in many forms: from internal training and mentoring through to attending externally led training or taking a further professional qualification. Some CPD will be offered to all staff, other CPD is more bespoke and will be provided to specific staff to support them in an aspect of their role. The links and areas below provide some signposting to CPD providers at a local and national level.
