Whenever you have undertaken CPD activity, compare it against your development plan and consider whether it met your objectives. It is important to evaluate whether your learning was effective.
Questions to think about when evaluating your CPD:
- Did your activity meet your needs?
- Can you apply your learning in the workplace, for example by satisfying your clients’ needs, or improving your approach in the workplace?
- Has there been a positive impact on your business?
- Would you do anything differently next time?
A good way of reviewing your learning is to reflect after each learning activity; and use the opportunity to write up a CPD record.
