Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

A commitment to CPD is an integral part of being a professional. CPD is described as ‘the systematic maintenance and improvement of knowledge, skills and competence throughout a professional’s working life.’ Keeping your knowledge and skills up to date in today’s fast-changing world of work is vitally important, yet some people find it more challenging to plan and systematically improve their own skills than to set up systems for continuous improvement in the workplace. For this reason, the Institute offers members guidance and support to help them get the best out of their Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

Our approach to CPD

As a leading professional institute, CILT have made a strong commitment to CPD and all members, across the nine Professional Sectors, are expected to adopt the philosophy as part of their own career paths. Commitment to CPD will be seen as a key indicator when seeking to upgrade to higher levels of CILT membership.
