Stay Engaged - ARA PDP

Here is an overview of CPD opportunities and suggestions for ways in which you can stay engaged and continue your professional development while working from home.

Although the current situation may have put paid to your CPD plans, with training and events either cancelled or postponed, this time may also provide an opportunity to look at other ways in which you could continue your CPD while working remotely from home. If by now you have adjusted to home working you may be in a position to take stock of your own professional development.

The ARA’s Professional Development Programme will continue to operate throughout this period so please take the time to explore the programme and learn more about the benefits of qualification. You can also catch up on the latest blog posts on the Professional Development Programme’s blog.

Over the coming weeks, Chris Sheridan, ARA’s Head of Professional Standards and Development, will be offering a series of five free 20-minute webinars every Wednesday.

Details of the webinars can be found here.

Chris welcomes suggestions for future webinar topics and is happy to receive any questions from members in advance of each webinar. Chris is also offering members 1-1 phone calls if you have any specific queries about the Professional Development Programme.
