Looking to stretch your mind after the festive season?

Want to make the most of your CLD Standards Council member benefits?

Wondering what the member benefits are?

Interested in how membership can support your CLD practice?

Then the Professional Induction Programme is for you! Tick off those new year resolutions by joining our next programme, beginning on 23 February.

The Professional Induction Programme (PIP) was developed by CLD Standards Council members to help those joining take advantage of all the benefits available as part of CLD Standards Council membership. Taking part will help you to

  • Increase your awareness and understanding of
    • the purpose, functions and professional standards of the CLDSC and the requirements;
    • the benefits of membership, with particular reference to professional learning and development
    • being a member of the CLDSC;
    • the process of professional learning and development to professional practice, recognition and progression;
    • the benefits that peer support and mentoring bring to professional learning and development.
  • Produce a Professional Learning & Development (PL&D) Plan setting professional learning goals within the context of your practice and critically reflect on its development.

The programme is split into three units:

  1. The CLD Standards Council Scotland – its Vision, Values, Code of Ethics and functions;
  2. Registration, Learning and Review;
  3. Goal Setting and Plan Development.

Each unit takes approximately 5 hours, you have 3 months to complete the programme and you can set your own pace.

The programme is delivered through i-develop and you’ll be allocated a course mentor. All the course mentors are members of the CLD Standards Council Professional Learning Committee.

You will also be able to connect with other members who are doing the programme through our dedicated Slack channel.

The programme will begin with an introductory workshop on 23 February 2024. If you’re interested in taking part, complete this PIP 2024 registration form by Wednesday 14th February.
