Boost your CPD with media training
CPD is common to most professions; forming an important part of career progression, and you can boost yours with media training.
More than just another TLA (three letter acronym), CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development and refers to the process of documenting the skills, knowledge and experience gained as you work. It?s important that as a professional you take responsibility for keeping yourself up to date with today?s ever-changing legislative, social and economic environment and the impact it has on your organisation.
Think of your CPD as a diary of what you have experienced, learnt, and how you have applied it in your working life. The term itself is generally used to mean a physical folder or portfolio documenting your development as a professional.
Many organisations regard CPD as a structured approach to learning; helping to ensure competence in practice, and developing knowledge, skills and practical experience. CPD can involve any relevant learning activity i.e.?training, whether formal and structured or informal and self-directed.
Many people undergo some form of media training?without realising that it can contribute to their CPD, whilst many others seek it out purely on that basis. The skills learnt are almost definitely life-skills and enable those trained to fulfil their potential in a wider number of roles in their ongoing careers.
Often, your profession will dictate that you have to fulfill a certain level of CPD in order for you to legally continue to practise.? In many countries this applies to lawyers, doctors, surgeons, pilots and a whole host of other professions. In?England and Wales for instance, all solicitors and legal executives who are in legal practice or employment, or who work 32 hours or more per week, are required to complete a minimum of 16 hours of CPD per year.
But more often than not your CPD is your own responsibility, and it?s up to you to both pursue opportunities and make a record of exercises which can contribute to it.
When writing and contributing to your CPD, your HR department should be able to provide you with information of what kind of thing you can include but the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (www.cipd.co.uk) recommend the following advice :
- Be continuous ? professionals should always be looking for ways to improve performance
- Be the responsibility of the individual learner to own and manage
- Be driven by the learning needs and development of the individual
- Be evaluative rather than descriptive of what has taken place
- Be an essential component of professional and personal life, never an optional extra
