Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the participation in ongoing education to improve knowledge/skills and to develop the personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout the practitioner's working life.

One of the main priorities of the Property Institute is to deliver timely, relevant, and engaging professional development of high quality.

We believe strongly in continuing education, both for the ongoing personal development of our members, and to ensure that professionals working in property-related fields have access to quality property-related training material.

We aim to be constantly improving our Continuing Professional Development (CPD) programme, and regularly take feedback and ideas from our members to broaden and expand the sorts of education that we provide.

An initial qualification cannot prepare the professionals of today with all the skills and knowledge they will need throughout their working lives.

Property professionals need to keep abreast of changes in many areas, including technology, legislation, methodology, business management, marketing and quality assurance.

We have a responsibility to ourselves, our fellow members and our clients to ensure that we are current with professional and industry standards and best practice – and the best way to achieve this is to continually reflect on and plan your training and development based on your current and future professional needs.

The Institute CPD model is based on a continuous cycle of Planning, Action, Evaluation and Reflection. Members are encouraged to follow this cycle, to evaluate the result or impact of the CPD activity and to plan how they will build their professional skills and knowledge. The Institute carries out an annual CPD audit.
