CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. In general, the aim of CPD is to promote professional growth through on-going learning. CPD encourages professionals to set goals and reflect on their progress towards achieving them, focusing on outcomes and results to measure development.
Professionals working in Town and Parish Councils have a wide range of duties to perform, which requires them to be knowledgeable about many different topics. CPD is about enabling staff to develop their knowledge and skill sets, both for the purpose of enhancing their professional performance and for the personal fulfilment that brings.
As an SLCC/NALC accredited trainer, RBS provides courses that carry CPD points to help Town and Parish Council staff to further their professional development. For a list of courses we are currently running please click here
