CPD Activities?


Cpd challenges

CPD Challenges

  • Measurement of the level of learning

  • Measuring the impact on practice

  • Development of learning organisations

  • Espousal of the ideology of lifelong learning

  • Systematic & continuous attempt to up-skill the workforce

  • Participation rates vary

  • ‘recurrent training’ for CPD - optional in most countries, including the UK

    ‘This aspect of guidance is very much under-researched.’

    McCarthy (2001, p.7)


Professional knowledge

Professional Knowledge

4 levels of professional knowledge

  • Cognitive Knowledge - (Know what we do)

  • Applying knowledge - (Know how to do it)

  • Integrated Knowledge - (Apply in collaboration)

  • Dynamic Knowledge - (Adapting the knowledge to major change)

    (Watkins 1996)


The role of continuing professional development siobhan neary booth co director

‘…those who do qualify and engage in professional practice, the realisation dawns that qualifying is not the point of arrival, but the point of departure'…the knowledge base on which our practice is founded is not static, but dynamic. It is not fixed, it is relentlessly evolving'.

(Mulvey, 2004)
