CPD is a simple and structured approach to everyday learning. CPD is not a formal qualification, rather the continuous learning, in bitesize chunks, that keep you, and your qualifications up to date. Today, CPD is the currency of professional education and training, by everyone in the workforce across the globe. 

It’s the culmination of every small and big effort you undertake to be better at work and a better you. In short, membership with the Institute of CPD provides:


Develop competence by rewiring your skills ready for the future


Build instant credibility with prestigious post-nominals & certified badges


Leverage our network to grow your business or get that dream job you want.

Traditional education has always provided the basic building blocks upon which CPD stands. In 2022 we need to learn subjects that truly matter to us and which give us the experience and ability to put us on track to succeed. We’re no longer learning for work, but from work.

Improve your knowledge, skills and competence with CPD

CPD, a key component of lifelong learning, can be defined as the systematic maintenance and improvement of knowledge, skills and competence, and the enhancement of learning, undertaken by an individual throughout their working life.

The Institute of CPD is a cross-professional body providing recognition and support for individuals, whatever their discipline, who demonstrate a personal commitment to their own CPD and recognise its value to their clients, colleagues and society in general.

“Continuing professional development plays a vital part in ensuring public confidence in the professions, especially in our increasingly fast-changing world. And it is particularly important for the UK, in order to maintain its outstanding reputation in the field of professional services in an increasingly competitive world. On a personal note, my own experience of CPD is that by introducing you to new ideas, it makes life more interesting as well as making you a better professional.”

- The Rt. Hon. Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury
