CPD Opportunities in Wales 2016

This is the CDI’s ‘Year of Professionalism’ and in Wales we are offering a new series of free early evening CPD sessions, which will take place in different towns.

Professionalism is important to any workforce and none more so than our own. But what does it mean in practice and how can we pursue and cement our professional status both as individuals and as a sector? Taking forward this theme we are organising a varied programme of professional development activities in Wales from May 2016 onwards in different venues throughout Wales.
