The professional development cycle is a continuous process and it is only through reviewing your CPD that you can move on to form suitable plans for your next steps and ensure your goals remain relevant and appropriate.
Reviewing your CPD has many benefits, including:
It’s important to review your CPD regularly, but you may also find that you want to review your plans on an ad-hoc basis, perhaps to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity. The IET recommend you review your CPD at least every six months, but you may choose to review more regularly to fit your development needs.
If you followed our planning guide and set review dates, your diary should tell you when it’s time to review your CPD. If using Career Manager you will have set review dates in the system too (this functionality is expected in spring 2013).
