The Centre for Adult Learning and Professional Development has now made it even easier to experience learning through CPD - Continuing Professional Development.

What is CPD?

CPD is a process by which you manage your own professional knowledge and skills on an ongoing basis. CPD gives you the opportunity to record, review and reflect on your learning. It is essential for continued employment and advancement.

How does CPD work?

You can take a selection of modules on a separate, standalone basis. Our modules are industry focused and provide an ideal opportunity to upskill in your profession and add to your CPD portfolio.

What modules are available through CPD?

Some modules have been completed for the 2017/2018 academic year. Modules for 2018/2019 academic year will be uploaded in August/September 2018.  See lists below of sample modules offered.
