The outcome of a well planned CPD course is that it safeguards the public, the employer, the professional and the professional’s career. Investing in staff development is an important pre-requisite for strengthening the ability of any organisation to fulfil its mission over time, and increase the chances of positively impacting on the lives of individuals as well as communities.
