Developing Yourself as an Effective Learning and Development Practitioner
In t r od u c t Io n
This chapter begins with a look at what is required of L&D professionals and how L&D roles are specified. We discuss the CIPD HR Profession Map and how we can use it to assess our professional development needs. We then move on to look at how we deliver our L&D service, considering: who are our customers, how well do we meet their needs and what can we do to improve our service delivery. In the final section of the chapter we look at the concept of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and give some practical tips on how to complete a CPD Record and select activities for professional development.
