The Many Benefits of Continuous Professional Development (CPD)
CPD represents a holistic and integral commitment from professionals to commit to enhancing their personal skills and pro ciency throughout their careers.
CPD’s are developed by professional programme developers to assist you in maintaining and improving your knowledge, skills and competence throughout your working life. Keeping your knowledge and skills up to date in today’s fast-changing systems of work is vitally important. You may find it challenging to plan and systematically improve your skills to set up systems for continuous improvement in your workplace. CILT can offer members guidance and support to help individuals gain knowledge to advance skills and improve competency in the industry through providing CPD Programmes.
Benefits of CPD’s
CPD is an investment that an individual makes in themselves. It is a way of planning development that links learning directly to practice. CPD helps keep skills and knowledge up to date and prepares those for greater responsibilities.
Many employers now value ‘learning agility’ as a core competency such as build confidence and credibility; seeing your progression by tracking your learning, in annual work appraisals, helping focus your career goals, and be more productive and efficient in the working environment.
CILT, the recognised professional body of the transport, logistics and supply chain management, facilitates CPD’s by co-ordinating Subject Matter Experts (SME) to develop Professional Programmes that are relevant to our industry and will be endorsed by the Department of Transport Tourism and Sport for all our members to avail of.
Programmes are developed to ensure:
Cost efficiency: CILT have buying power and develop programmes in conjunction with the SME.
Relevance: Businesses can avail of industry relevant training for their staff.
Convenience: Delivered at a time and a location that suits the company.
Skill gaps: Our SME’s set out programmes in a way that improves your knowledge, competency and skill gaps.
Continuous Reflective Learning:
A key element of CILT’s approach to CPD is to ensure individuals take time to reflect and act on the lessons learnt from any single CPD activity. The value of reflective learning is that it makes you, as a professional, consider:
• The CPD activity addressed the need set out in your CPD requirement
• Whether the CPD has  lled the knowledge competency or skill gap
• The value of the CPD activity now being used within the working environment
• Possibly becoming a super user and passing the knowledge onto others in work.
Fee Structure
CILT run a variety of CPD Programmes that will be of interest to members and non-members. Our main core value in providing CPD programmes is to promote professionalism in Logistics, Transport and Supply Chain.
