Whether you’re looking to improve your social media content planning skills or gain an intro to SEO, Digital Women provides a growing list of CPD-accredited courses to suit your existing skill set and career goals. Here’s a quickfire guide to how taking a CPD course could benefit you and how to get signed up to one of ours today!
What is CPD?
CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development; a CPD course is one used by professionals to further their career in some way. CPD courses are a proactive and self-driven way of learning new skills or developing existing ones. The CPD certified symbol acts as a qualitative benchmark for the highest standards of further learning, both reflecting and setting the standards across multiple industries.
3 benefits of taking a CPD course
Keeps your knowledge up to date
The modern digital world is constantly changing, particularly after this year of accelerated digitisation, meaning your knowledge and skill set need to be constantly revisited and replenished. It’s never been more important to actively ensure your knowledge is up to date and CPD courses help you to do this. Taking a CPD course can also help you maintain the relevance and integrity of your professional qualifications as well as demonstrate your agility and willingness to learn.
Opens new doors in your career
Not only could CPD benefit your career progression by helping you towards getting that promotion or specialism, but it inevitably allows you to access the higher salaries that come with these roles too. CPD is a great way to show your continued commitment to your industry and profession while also qualifying you and equipping you with the right knowledge and skills to perform well in higher level roles.
Provides security and assurance
It goes without saying that surviving and thriving in such an ever-changing world can be unnerving, stressful, and even anxiety-inducing. Partaking in further learning through CPD allows you to take control of your career and continue feeling that sense of achievement, reassurance and security that may have been lost this year. Mapping out which CPD courses would be beneficial to you can also help you identify where it is you really want to go in your career and to start tailoring your learning and qualifications towards that.
