CPD Roles and Responsibilities

 

The Standards Council

We will nurture a culture of learning in our sector in order that individual engagement will contribute to the development of the whole profession; we will celebrate learning, relish challenge and reflect critically on our practice.

Our vision for all CLD practitioners is that their participation in continuous professional development activities will be a central and established part of their practice. Through this they will demonstrate and enhance their commitment to a culture of learning:

  • Where learning is celebrated, recognised and encouraged
  • Where learning is reflected on and shared
  • Where challenge is relished and embraced
  • Where critical reflection is embedded in practice
  • Where individuals can explore learning related to their role throughout their careers

This culture is underpinned by the values and competences of CLD and commitment to our Code of Ethics.
