The Institute of Supply Chain Management (IoSCM) is proud to announce we have recently achieved accredited CPD Status with the CPD Standards Office.
So, what is CPD and why should it matter to me?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.
CPD combines different methodologies to learning, such as training workshops, conferences and events, e-learning programs, best practice techniques and ideas sharing, all focused for an individual to improve and have effective professional development.
Engaging in Continuing Professional Development ensures that both academic and practical qualifications do not become out-dated or obsolete; allowing individuals to continually ‘up skill’ or ‘re-skill’ themselves, regardless of occupation, age or educational level.
Who are CPD and how did IoSCM achieve the highly coveted CPD accreditation?
The Professional Development Consortium is home to the CPD Standards Office, the CPD Research Project and the Provider of Training Excellence. Their wealth of knowledge and research within the Learning and Development Industry and their team of industry professionals on the Expert Advisory Board are a few of the reasons that contribute to the detailed and rigorous assessment processes they have in place.
To achieve the accreditation IoSCM has undergone a rigorous assessment process that focuses on the development and delivery of our training including our educational authority, how we collect and utilise our delegate feedback and ensure our content is kept up to date.
Now IoSCM has achieved this accreditation and status as an accredited CPD provider, we are committed to working hard to maintain, and exceed, the excellent standard we have already set.
We have a range of course’s that are now CPD accredited, including;
*The industry-leading Intelligence 4.0 learning programme. A package of online short courses that breaks down the latest methodologies, practices and processes to help you build up your knowledge and skill-set in bite-size chunks.
