ACCA's CPD requirement supports your professional development by giving you the flexibility to obtain your CPD through a wide range of activities – it is not just about attending face-to-face courses.
For instance, coaching, mentoring, e-learning, networking, discussion groups, working on committees or panels, learning at work, reading, and undertaking research are just some of the other ways in which you can find development opportunities.
The important point to remember is that the learning must be relevant to your current role or career aspirations.
Questions to think about when choosing your CPD activities
- Will the activities you’ve identified meet your, your organisation’s, and/or your clients’ needs?
- Have you thought about a range of different learning activities (e-learning, coaching, networking?)
- Can you make an impact by developing skills to support others (your employer or business, junior staff or ACCA trainees, the community)?
