Regulated professionals need to maintain their CPD record in order to continue to practice and this can be measured by the number of CPD hours (or points) a professional undertakes, or else in an outcomes based way. This means that individuals must self-prescribe learning they feel they need, and then reflect on how it has helped them to improve in their role. If you don’t have a formal CPD record to keep, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t keep a personal one. ****************** Our research has shown that a CPD section on a CV can greatly improve employability prospects (The CPD Research Project 2010). Undertaking and recording formal CPD is a great way to demonstrate to your current or prospective employer that you work hard to keep up to date.
