Welcome to the Managing your own continuing professional development course. Continuing professional development (CPD) is a combination of approaches, ideas and techniques that will help you manage your own learning and growth. This online course will provide you with the tools with which to take personal responsibility for managing your own continuing professional development.  
The focus of CPD is firmly on results - the benefits that professional development can bring you in the real world.  Perhaps the most important message is that one size doesn't necessarily fit all.  Wherever you are in your career now, and whatever you want to achieve, your CPD should be exactly that: yours.
