CPD for Employers

Accredited CPD Employers

With employers increasingly becoming educators, and grappling to recruit and retain talented employees, many employers work with the CPDSO to become accredited CPD employers.

Working with major employers such as NHS organisations, education providers, banks and other businesses. Accreditation ensures high quality standards are maintained, and consists of an independent assessment of in-house training and learning provision, including in-house CPD activities, outsourced providers & Learning Management Systems (LMS) and other best practice activities.

On becoming a fully accredited employer you will receive a host of benefits, and will be listed formally on the cpdstandards.com website, and will receive the following accredited mark to include in all your communications and marketing materials:
