As a professional manager, your self-development and continuing learning is key to a varied and successful career. It’s not always easy to plan your continuous professional development (CPD), or to get the most out of it.

Resources for you to plan and structure your CPD:

  • Identify where there are gaps in your skills and learning
  • Set goals and plan your CPD activity
  • Record and review your CPD actions

Downloadable CPD resources

Includes: why self-development is important, how to start, resources and why to use the CPD planner.

Use the planner to help you define what skills you want to develop and how you will develop them. Record what you’ve done, assess how useful it was and work out what you achieved and what you need to do in the future.
