  IfL Definition of CPD



‘Continuing professional development means maintaining,
  improving and broadening relevant subject knowledge
and skills in your subject specialism and your teaching so
  that it has a positive impact on practice and the learner
                          experience’

               IfL guidelines for CPD (2007)




                                               www.ifl.ac.uk
CPD that counts


Any activity undertaken for the purposes of updating
knowledge of the subject taught and developing
teaching/training skills…..

• have you reflected on your learning from this activity?
• has it made a difference to your practice?
• has there been an impact on learners and others?

If so, you can count this towards your CPD and include it
as evidence in your CPD record
