What is this Community of Practice all about?

Launched in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDP community has rapidly grown to include over 1,000 CDI members working in all walks of career development. The community discusses a wide range of topics and members regularly pose questions and requests for help related to their areas of practice. 

Features include:

  • Access to sector experts
  • Popular group topics helping you stay on top of the discussion
  • Information sharing
  • Resources
  • Live #WeAreCareers episode broadcasts

Membership of the CDP community is part of our package of membership benefits - so you will need to be a member of the CDI to take part. In this way we are able to offer a moderated and mediated discussions which will avoid commercial bias and ensure that content complies with the CDI Code of Ethics.

How is the CoP managed?

We have a range of community-identified experts on subject matters across the sector helping to guide and moderate discussion, as well as our Community Volunteers Dave Cordle and Liz Reece. 

Dave Cordle has over 20 years’ experience as an independent career coach, and works with adults at all stages of their career and with young people preparing for the move from education into the world of work. He is a fellow and former president of the CDI.

Liz Reece is registered career development professional specialising in guidance, training, assessment and careers education development, and also acts as a Quality in Careers Standard assessor.
