The CPD Standards Office is the official accreditation partner for the Institute of CPD (iCPD)
Official Accreditation Partner
The Institute was established in 1995 as the first membership organisation for individuals to join and openly commit to CPD.
It welcomes young people, professionals and individuals from all backgrounds and sectors, who are ambitious, committed to professional development and practice proactive learning as an integral part of their work and career.
Members benefit from prestigious letters after their name, digital badges to publicly signpost their commitment to CPD, as well as suggestions for professional development and a place to record their CPD.
An Exclusive Collaboration
The CPD Standards Office exclusively partners with iCPD to offer accredited CPD training, coaching and online education to the Institute’s members.
Organisations that are accredited by CPD Standards can become iCPD Learning Partners and offer free membership (of the 1st year) to their learners.
Research has found that individuals who undertake regular CPD experience a greater level of work engagement, increased chances of promotion, and are more successful in their careers.
By having a workforce that is committed to, and passionate about continuous improvement, benefits all of society.
