Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a formal way of taking control of your career.

It encourages you to think about your professional goals and any gaps in your knowledge and skill set that may obstruct these. It also helps you to record your learning and development and prompts reflection on what you have learnt, how you have applied this and what your future needs are.

It’s likely that you’re already participating in activities which qualify as CPD. These can include:

  • Training
  • Qualifications
  • E-learning programmes
  • Conferences & Events
  • Reading
  • Authorship

CPD activities are recorded in hours, with most worthy of a pre-determined number set by the provider or CPD partner. These hours can be used as a currency to enable you to maintain or upgrade your MRS membership.

What are the benefits of CPD?
  • Identify training needs and areas for personal growth
  • Plan your future career path
  • Develop your professional capability
  • Enhance your reputation
  • Boost your self-confidence
  • Showcase your achievements and knowledge
  • Build a pathway to MRS Certified Membership
