Short Courses for Professional Development
Professional Development (PD) is quite simply a means of supporting people in the workplace to understand more about the environment in which they work, the job they do and how to do it better. It is an ongoing process throughout our working lives.
All professional development programs are projects linked to your workplace so you get real benefits not just theory.
We live in a rapidly changing world where legislative, social and economic developments directly affect the environment in which we live and work, and where technological advances provide radically different ways of working. PD opportunities provide a means whereby we can keep abreast of these changes, broaden our skills and be more effective in our work.
Professional Development can be part of an individual’s personal ambition to be a better practitioner, enhance his/her career prospects or to simply feel more confident about their work and make it more personally fulfilling. It can be a step on the ladder to higher qualifications or enhanced job prospects or be required by professional bodies to maintain professional status. It can be part of meeting targets set by workforce performance management schemes or an opportunity for individuals to change their career paths.
Whilst Professional Development is an important part of our working lives, it also represents a means for employers to support their staff. PD can facilitate access to specialised structured training, help to review working practices and contribute to a more effective and profitable business.
Indeed engaging staff in PD activities can be invigorating for individuals and the business alike.
