CPD Accredited Events
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities – enabling people learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive. It’s a holistic commitment of professionals towards the enhancement of their personal skills and proficiency throughout their careers.
All of our conferences are CPD certified – allowing you to combine our events into your professional development to become more effective and be more focused.
Engaging in CPD ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually up-skill and re-skill themselves regardless of occupation, age or educational level. A structured, practical and methodical approach to learning helps employers across industries to keep key staff and develop the skills and knowledge in their organisations to maintain a sustainable and competitive advantage.
Our structured events allow for active learning – involving interaction and participation. ‘Structured CPD’ is typically proactive and can include attending a training course, a conference, workshop, seminar, lecture, e-learning course or CPD certified event – such as the Built Environment Networking Conferences.
CPD is essential in helping individuals, organisations and entire industries to keep skills and knowledge up to date. Providing CPD enables organisations to become a knowledge bank to key stakeholders of your organisation. They allow professionals to use the learning time towards individual CPD requirements.
For individuals it helps to regularly focus on how they can become a more competent and effective professional. Training and learning can increase confidence, capability and compliments career aspirations. It enables individuals to adapt positively to changes in work or industry environments. CPD shows a clear commitment to self-development and professionalism, whilst providing an opportunity for an individual to identify knowledge gaps and to resolve these in a recognisable approach to improvement.
For organisations the value is with investing time in staff, and also helps improve your organisations through recognition and increased brand perception. It encourages staff and promotes a healthy learning culture for your organisation, leading to a more fulfilled workforce and retaining valuable staff. Many organisations have staff with CPD obligations as members of professional bodies. In circumstances where internal CPD training resources are low, organisations use outsourced CPD training providers to meet staff requirements.
Our events run for 3.5 hours and allow you to be challenged in different environment – with networking and insight presentations and discussions to ensure a high level of learning at each event. We’ll provide you with a certificate to record your CPD training at every conference, signed by our Managing Director Keith Griffiths.
