Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an integral part of the CIPD Professional Standards. In addition to traditional modes of study, all CIPD students must also demonstrate an understanding of, and commitment to, CPD. In addition, those wishing to become Members of the Institute must demonstrate a similar commitment to CPD. This book will provide both groups with detailed practical guidance and a theoretical overview. The text includes a range of examples and case studies (with commentary) and various activities are proposed to aid self-assessment and evaluate progress. This second edition increases the focus on: - critical debate about issues in CPD - outlines how to organise and encourage CPD - spells out how seniors and professionals can use CPD.
