Continuous Professional Development


We want to help create a community environment across Schools and Services in which our staff are inspired to learn and develop together every day, helping good practice to be shared, and poor practice to be challenged.


Continuous Professional Development (CPD) as a Chartered Manager

As a Chartered Manager, you will need to evidence effective annual CPD. The CMI Code of Practice for professional managers states that adherence to the code, which includes an ongoing commitment to self-development, is a fundamental requirement of CMI membership.



How should you approach CPD?

We recommend that good CPD is based on the four-stage cycle of Reflection, Planning, Action and Evaluation. To learn more about this approach, please click here and go to the FAQs ‘How should I approach CPD?’ tab.


What counts as CPD?

CPD encompasses learning through a range of resources and activities. For further details, please click here and go to the FAQs ‘What counts as CPD?’ tab .

How should you record your CPD?

As a Chartered Manager you are required to keep a record of your CPD. We recommend you take advantage of CMI’s online CPD system, which can be accessed here. This system makes it easier for you to record your learning objectives and activities and enables you to generate a personalised report of your development. If you would like to know more about how to use CMI’s CPD system, please contact the Chartered Manager Team via email: or tel: 01536 207307.


Non-accredited CPD opportunities

As a Chartered Manager you can take advantage of a range of CPD opportunities made available by the CMI. These include events and webinars where you can learn from leaders at the cutting edge of their profession, or by using ManagementDirect (your online management learning portal) if you need fast, well-informed answers to your daily leadership challenges.
