Professional Development webinars: Dates for your diary


  • PDP News: Professional development webinars: Dates for your diary

    Despite its challenges, 2020 proved to be a record year for ARA professional registration. New enrolments onto our Professional Development Programme increased by 8%, and we saw a 50% increase in the number of enrolled members working on their Registered Membership application.

    There are good reasons for this. The COVID-19 pandemic reduced the amount of time many spent commuting, freeing up capacity to invest in career development. But we know some members are also looking ahead. The economy has yet to realise the true economic cost of the pandemic. This may make the UK and Irish job market more competitive, and perhaps more uncertain.

    So, reflecting our commitment to supporting our members' careers, we're kicking off 2021 with a new series of professional development webinars, building on the success of the 2020 Wednesday webinars. Whether you're looking to take your career to the next level, thinking about your own CPD, or want to know more about how ARA can support the professional development of your staff and volunteers, we've something to offer.
