Your CPPD Portfolio
A CPPD portfolio helps keep a track of progression from year to year. It is an individual’s evidential documentation of their Continuing Personal and Professional Development obligations for their professional body or association. Contained within a CPPD portfolio would be the register of activities, such as training courses, workshops and educational events attended, as well as a copy of the delegate CPPD certificates for each activity. These act as validation that the learning has been completed.
A structured and consistent approach to recording your CPPD makes it easier to manage throughout the year. This also helps ensure an individual attends training and events relevant to their annual capability improvement objectives, which is more valuable than simply attending courses just for general interest.
Recording your CPPD allows reflection on what has been gained from the CPPD activities and what can be implemented in day-to-day objectives, as well as what skill sets to develop next. As a general rule, when recording your Continuing Personal and Professional Development in a CPPD portfolio, it should contain the following information:- Date of CPPD activity, Title of CPPD activity, Brief description including learning objectives, the method of learning (i.e. training course, workshop, event, eLearning), number of CPPD hours, points or credits and the overall learning outcome.
Programme Endorsement (also referred to as Certification)
Organisations that have their own existing training programme can have this programme endorsed by an Awarding Organisation. This service can raise the profile of an organisation’s training and development activities and provide opportunities for learners to showcase their achievements.
Endorsement of your programme demonstrates to stakeholders that you have adhered to high standards in the design of your programme and that it is relevant to the needs of participants.
Learners who complete your programme will be awarded a certificate of attendance jointly by our Company and the Awarding Organisation which will show the name of your endorsed programme. This can include your logo and date of achievement if required.
Benefits for an organisation
An endorsed programme demonstrates to stakeholders that you have adhered to high standards in the design of your programme and that it is relevant to the needs of participants.
Endorsement is low cost.
Certificates carry the Awarding Organisation providing evidence of a learner’s completion of the training programme.
This option is ideal for organisations looking for an external review from an awarding body.
