CPD Opportunities in Scotland 2017

This is the CDI’s ‘Year of Advocating for the Career Development Profession’

Following the Chinese tradition each year we will identify a unique theme.

2017 is the Year of Advocating for the Career Development Profession.

In 2016 we organised a varied programme of professional development activities in Dundee, Paisley, Glasgow and Edinburgh. These included: Professionalism, Ethical Practice, Working in the Private Sector, Scottish Credit and Qualification Framework, Working Together to progress Equality and Careers of the Future. We would like to offer further professional development activities in 2017. Following the appointment of a new Project Associate for Scotland in Summer 2017 we will advertise our new offer.
