We’ve all sat through some dire training sessions, simply looking at the clock in mind-numbing boredom, waiting for it to end, and retaining very little of what we were taught. But Continuous Professional Development doesn’t need to be like that.

‘T&C’ - formally known as training and competence - is not a new idea. The General Insurance Standard’s Council launched their own rules and elements of these can still be seen today under the current FCA T&C rules.
Becoming a more effective learner
One of the most important factors when becoming a more effective learner is identifying the learning style that suits you best.
CPD – “It’s not just professional… it’s personal!”
CPD for some is a necessary evil, a tick box exercise or an inconvenience. Some feel they don’t need it, are too experienced or view it as a fluffy HR initiative. To be continuously professionally developing is quite a clinical endeavour.
