CPD The basic question: What is CPD?
CPD It is the means by which people maintain their knowledge and skills related to their professional lives. CPD obligations are common to most professions. Many professions define CPD as a structured approach to learning to help ensure competence to practice, taking in knowledge, skills and practical experience. CPD can involve any relevant learning activity, whether formal and structured or informal and self-directed. Wikipedia the free encyclopedia August 2014
Other definitions The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (UK) define CPD as a commitment by members to continually update their skills and knowledge in order to remain professionally competent and achieve their true potential.Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors This approach emphasizes: continuing, because learning never ceases, regardless of age or seniority; professional, because it is focused on professional competence in a professional role; and concerned with development, because the goal is to improve personal performance and enhance career progression, which arguably is much wider than just formal training courses.

Medical professionals CPD is defined as the education of physicians following completion of formal training. CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain, develop or increase knowledge, problem-solving, technical skills or professional performance standards all with the goal that physicians can provide better health care. CPD includes 'formal' activities, e.g. courses, conferences and workshops, as well as self-directed activities such as preceptorship and directed reading. Wikipedia the free encyclopedia August 2014
In the United Kingdom CPD is defined as: The systematic maintenance and improvement of knowledge, skills and competence throughout a professional's working life. It is about maintaining and improving standards of competence and professionalism. The focus is on the learner to take responsibility for developing and directing their own career.

European Federation of National Engineering Associations FEANIFEANI defines CPD as the acquisition of knowledge, experience and skills, as well as, the development of personal qualities. It contains both the acquisition of new skills, to broaden competence, and the enhancement of existing skills to keep abreast of evolving knowledge http://www.feani.org

CPD domains CPD is identified in four main sources 1.Learning through work-based activities 2.Attendance at courses, seminars and conferences 3.Personal activities outside work 4.Self-directed and informal learning
Continuing CPD while on a career break These activities can broaden your knowledge and understanding of many issues relating to people management. Here are some examples of CPD activities that one might want to consider
Continuing CPD while on a career break A range of public duties-such as being a school governor, or member of an industrial tribunal. Voluntary work. Involvement with voluntary/charitable organizations can be an enriching experience and a source of learning.
Continuing CPD while on a career break Organizing social or sports events, or helping in the management of a club or society. This offers opportunities to develop your organizational skills. Providing assistance to family members or friends who have job or career problems or who run their own business.
Continuing CPD while on a career break Writing and lecturing. This will help you develop your communication and presentation skills. Travelling- route planning, budgeting personal finances and developing interpersonal skills. Job hunting- completing job applications, signing on with recruitment agencies and updating CVs.
Self-directed and informal learning The subject matter and methods of personal studies which are relevant for CPD purposes can be much wider than those directly related to your work. Examples of self directed learning include:
Continuing CPD while on a career break Taking language courses. Courses about running your own business, which would assist in a career plan to start a consultancy. Various types of self-development courses which may give you a deeper insight into your own personality, strengths, weaknesses and potential.
Continuing CPD while on a career break Personal reading plans. Reading professional and research publications, including people management, coaching at work and other information resources. Self-teaching DVDs and CD-ROM materials.
Continuing CPD while on a career break Attending exhibitions, courses and conferences. Information gathering e.g. childbirth, caring for the sick, coping with redundancy and employment law updates. Developing knowledge of caring for the young/elderly/disabled.
Continuing CPD while on a career break Entertaining students from overseas can help you learn about people management and practices in other cultures. Attending CPD branch meetings and events. Reading HR books.
From CPD to GPD CPD is self focused but when we need to do a continuous development for an institution the we must start thinking in broader terms. Namely GPD: guided professional development.
Do we really need this?
GPD Every institution or organization or business should have a “vision”. To reach the goal of that vision we need GPD
GPD planning First we need to say that this is an organizational endeavor Then we need a situational analysis to know exactly “where we are today”? Then we need to mark a goal and attach a time stamp to it: “where do we want to go”? and when do we expect to reach these endpoints?
GPD planning A specialized office will take care of GPD. This office will be run by people with vision and who specialize in PR and HR
GPD planning Then a need assessment will be performed to know the status of every worker and the strongpoints and his/her weaknesses - including the people working in the GPD area and in the management.
GPD planning Each worker will be directed first to the areas where weaknesses are noted, then on a second level of intervention to the areas of excellence in order to reinforce these areas.
GPD planning Many workers will themselves be part of the GPD program as they will participate in teaching and in skill advancement for other workers.
