Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

CPD is defined as the 'systematic maintenance', improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional duties throughout your working life.

If you are to maximise your potential for lifetime employability, it is essential that you maintain high levels of professional competence by continually upgrading your skills and knowledge.  CPD covers the training and lifelong learning from the period of registration throughout an individual's career.

CPD is supported by IGEM with the aim of creating an environment which enables you to remain professionally competent throughout your working life.  This is done by providing information and guidance to assist you to develop your expertise in recognising and planning your learning needs, recording the activities you undertake to satisfy those needs and thus maximize your employability.


There are a number of ways by which to keep records, but the most usual is using IGEM's 'mycareerpath' via the 'My IGEM' login.  This self assessment tool enables you to monitor yourself against agreed competencies by planning and recording evidence linked to competencies or longer term goals.  You can also have your assessments, plans, reports and evidence reviewed.

CPD Approved Courses

Courses and seminars can be approved by IGEM for Continuous Professional Development purposes.  If you are running a course, seminar or event you think may be relevant to our members, please contact Membership Services to discuss the details.
