Lifelong learning is key to ensuring you stay at the top of your game. An increasing number of research professionals are tracking their CPD (Continuous Professional Development) through our Programme. Our CPD framework, available for Members and  Company Partner employees, helps you assess your abilities and set goals for development . 

MRS members can access a wide range of professional development resources via My membership. These include SAGE Research MethodsMRS Delphi Group reports and the Evidence Talks podcast, as well as the MRS webinar library. 

Finding the time to do CPD can be challenging, but by continually building your skills and knowledge, you increase your resilience and relevance, as well as future-proof your career. Tracking allows you to prove your competencies to your employer. Your CPD journey can also maximise your MRS membership, with the opportunity to achieve Certified Member status.

"I’ve really enjoyed the programme and how it pushes me to improve what we offer. I’ve learnt some really inspiring techniques and definitely plan on continuing to participate in the opportunities that MRS offers.
