Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)


In this course, learners will consider both their own CPD and that of their team members. Be introduced to preferred learning styles, learning opportunities, and how to plan and evaluate learning. Learn how to help others set up a CPD file and how to lead others to develop professionally. Discover the learning cycle and how full and valid qualifications fit in to this learning process.


You do not need to be working in a managerial role to complete this course but should be working as a member of a childcare setting team. 


Learning outcomes 


  • You will learn that good practitioners will always be looking for ways to improve and develop their practice
  • You will learn how to reflect on your professional development needs
  • You will learn that practitioners who value personal development will have more opportunities for training and development


Advantages of this course 


  • The learning experience, and ability to learn, does not end when you leave full-time education. It is a continuous process and can greatly benefit your personal and professional life. This course will explain the importance of finding time to self-evaluate learning and development needs, the ways in which you can reflect on this, and how to identify opportunities at work. 
  • All practitioners should have a plan for their development and feel motivated to achieve it. A supportive working environment, manager / supervisor, and colleagues will positively contribute to this process. In the presentation section of this course, the concept of planning for learning and development (specifically a personal development plan) is explained in detail. 
  • Additional activities encourage you to reflect on your learning
  • There is also suggested extended reading that gives both practical information and links to websites to expand knowledge


On successful completion of this course, you will have the option of purchasing a CACHE certificate. This certificate must not be confused with nationally regulated qualification achievement.
