Skills Paying Bills in 2021

Posted on March 17, 2021 by - CPD Sectors>News

At the end of December 2020, 1.72 million people were out of work in the UK, an increase of 1.2% compared to September 2019. The job market is now more competitive than ever, with many seeking any type of work they can find to support themselves financially.

Rising numbers of professionals are now looking to up-skill into new industries and get back into work by changing careers. As the demand for upskilling increases, many individuals have now started sourcing training from companies that have a CPD accreditation. This guarantees the quality of the training and also ensures that CPD points are given to the individual upon completion.

But just what does the job market look like in the UK today? We analysed Glassdoor.co.uk to find out which industries are hiring in the current environment and in which parts of the UK the most available jobs are.

Which Job Positions Are Most Available?

Few will be surprised that medical professionals are most in-demand, with 4.32% of all roles advertised on Glassdoor UK looking for a registered nurse. Pressure on the NHS is nothing new, but the pandemic has led to even more numbers of trained medical staff required to cope with COVID-19.

2.35% of jobs on offer are for janitorial staff. Despite many businesses being closed, those that are able to remain open need to address cleanliness and hygiene as a high priority in order to comply with government guidelines, meaning cleaning staff are in high demand.

Digital marketing representatives make up 1.97% of all open roles and marketing managers come in at 2%. With 85,000 businesses launching online stores since March 2020 and 75% of buyers and sellers preferring online stores, digital marketing appears to be a growth industry despite, or some may argue because of, the challenging economic times.

Schools have been intermittently closed over the last twelve months and this has left many parents with the tough challenge of having to look after their children while also working. A third of local authorities have reduced free childcare placements in the UK, meaning early years are also being denied free child care. Therefore, private childcare providers have had a hiring surge and nanny’s now make up 1.79% of open roles.

Private tutor jobs are also on the rise, with 1.48% of advertised roles on Glassdoor UK. Concerned parents are choosing to use these private educators to accommodate missed lessons from school.

Where Is The Highest Supply of Jobs?

The North / South divide when it comes to economic opportunity has been in the news again recently in the context of varying lockdown restrictions across the country. The data from Glassdoor did show a significant number of adverts were for jobs in London (27.85%), however, Northern cities were also well represented, with Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow, combining to make up 34% of advertised jobs on Glassdoor UK.

Which Companies Have The Highest Percentage of Jobs Available?

When looking at specific companies who are hiring, the leader was a provider of private childcare care, Little Ones UK, at 1.50%, reflecting the need for private childcare during the pandemic and school and nursery closures.

Language Trainers, who provide foreign language lessons, took up 0.46% of adverts. In the first lockdown, 10% of Brits took an opportunity to learn a second language. Duolingo, a language learning app, showed an almost 300% increase in new users in March 2020 alone.

Hobbies that can be enjoyed safely in our own homes have been key keeping many of us occupied during lockdown. Gaming increased by 46% at the start of the pandemic and software developers Jadex are seeking various professionals to meet the demands of users, with 0.46% of advertised jobs.

Get F2F ready Update – 13th August 2020

CPD Standards Office Warns of Training Scams – UK Press Coverage – Summer 2020

Posted on August 7, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

Since inception in 2012, the CPD Standards Office has relentlessly campaigned for excellence in lifelong learning on both a UK national, and global basis.

Since COVID19’s lockdown, there has been a boom in online learning, and the web has become flooded with new training and coaching providers.

As with every industry, there is always a black market.  Sadly online learning has a dark underbelly, where  many unscrupulous companies are masquerading as quality online learning providers.

Yet scratch under the skin, and you find a plethora of ‘trickster trainers’ and ‘cowboy coaches’ cashing in on the demand for online learning.

These charlatans generally leave many consumers disappointed, out of pocket, and often in monthly subscriptions which are difficult to exit.  In some cases, we have seen unsuspecting individuals face significant financial loss, with no direct regulator to oversee these bad practices.

As the UK authority on quality standards and accreditation for the CPD, training and coaching industries, the CPD Standards Office has been featured in a number of publications warning against these scams and raising awareness on the issues.  As the experts in this area, we have cautioned and warned against these scams to raise national awareness on these issues.

See the following features and links to our press portfolio.  If you would like a contribution, or wish to discuss PR and press coverage, please email our CEO Amanda Rosewarne, amanda.rosewarne@cpdstandards.com

The CPD Research Project 2020

Posted on August 7, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

Our Research Background

The CPD Research Project, established in 2009, is largest university led research project into CPD, adult skill development and lifelong learning.

With over a thousand professionals, 50 professional institutes, and various employers, charities and government, taking part in the research project, the results produced robust data.

The most striking finding was a strong need for stringent, independent accreditation to verify appropriate learning activities.

Whether training courses, conference events, online learning and coaching for formal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and employment performance management requirements.

From there, the Professional Development Consortium was founded which is home to the CPD Standards Office, and the CPD Research Project – still ongoing to this day.

As the independent CPD accreditation service for PDC, the CPD Standards Office mission has always been to “Campaign for Excellence in Lifelong Learning”.  To continue to achieve this, we need considerable contributions to this survey that will generate robust data and statistics.  These will consequently generate a clearer picture of the evolving landscape of online and CPD training opportunities, as well as its dark underbelly of unscrupulous rogue providers.

Online Learning Nightmares Survey

Posted on August 5, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

The International CPD Standards Office wants to know more about your negative experiences of online training.

As many of you know, we are proud to promote our accredited, gold standard global CPD training and coaching providers.

Since COVID19’s lockdown, there has been a boom in online learning, where unfortunately the market has become flooded with new providers, some of which, selling poor-quality online courses, leading to disappointing online learning experiences.

Over the past decade, iCPDSO has continually campaigned for ‘excellence in lifelong learning’.  We want to make sure that any online training course or coaching class bought by you, or your organisation, a positive, remarkable and reliable learning experience.

Please be assured that your responses and the data generated from this survey will not be shared with any third party organisations.

All of your responses will be kept confidential, however you do have the opportunity to share your story publicly if you would like to.

The survey results will be openly available, and the international CPD Standards Office will continue to campaign for high standards from the training and coaching industries.
So please donate 4 minutes of your time to help.

Blockchain is Powering E-Learning – But Beware the Charlatans

Posted on July 17, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

CPSO CEO and Co-founder Amanda Rosewarne’s article featured in MillGens – check out the article and link below.

https://millgens.com/blockchain/blockchain-e-learning/

E-learning has exploded thanks to the business chaos wrought by the coronavirus, and bad actors are looking to cash in – that’s why blockchain is critical to helping validate courses, writes Amanda Rosewarne, CEO and Co-Founder of The Professional Development Consortium

 

The COVID-19 lockdown precipitated an exponential rise in “self-directed learning”, and online e-learning. Millions of people across the globe have utilised their time in self-isolation to learn new skills, update their knowledge sets and/or learn a new hobby.

In a bid to take advantage of this skyrocketing demand, nascent communications and web technologies are being employed to craft and sell online courses, creating a new business-to-consumer (B2C) market in online e-learning.

Prior to the pandemic, Forbes predicted that the e-learning industry would be worth £325 billion in 2022.  However, this is likely to have quadrupled, with the demand for online learning while people self-isolate, and have the time – either from a lack of commute, or from being furloughed – to indulge in e-learning.

E-learning and online education sit behind an iron curtain. There are rarely honest consumer reviews of any given course, or transparent information about the success rate of a course, or even ‘taster’ examples of an online course’s content.

Beware Cowboy Coaches And Charlatan Trainers

Earlier this Spring, the CPD Standards Office warned that those looking to buy an online course need to ensure that it has been externally verified. Particularly as many course providers use convincing and aggressive digital advertising to coerce people to choose from the plethora of topics online and easily buying e-learning courses out of their own pocket.

The online course world has become a very grey area, and is purely capitalising on populism. Overwhelmed by the possibility of making money, there is little understanding, or ethical consideration from these new charlatans, or under-qualified experts.

A New Sheriff In Town: How Blockchain Is Solving The Problem

As the new sheriff in town, blockchain technology can publicly record whether a course has been accredited by an individual student, whether it has been accredited, and details of the accreditation body – plus the quality of the assessment criteria.

In its simplest form, blockchain technology is a ledger system containing information about transactions, it evolves into a chain of blocks which contains information data. It has the unique ability to record the date, person and course that has been undertaken transparently. And blockchain can also record whether the course provider has been verified by a third-party accreditation organisation. The CPD Standards Office is leading the global training market and pioneering the issuing of digital certificates using a blockchain platform.

In 2019, the CPDSO launched one of the first accreditation services offering a blockchain portal to accredited training providers, enabling them to issue individual digital certificates that have been ‘stamped on the blockchain’ to verify a person has undertaken the course.

The Role of Blockchain In Educational Standardisation

In today’s digital and information age, lifelong learning is crucial for everyone in the workforce, regardless of age or stage. So-called continuous professional development (CPD) now forms a cornerstone within every person’s career path or role. From retail assistant to finance director, CPD is crucial to ensure individuals stay up to date, and their professional qualifications do not become obsolete.

There are over 2,500 professional bodies and regulators in the United Kingdom that oversee and regulate different professions and industries. These offer different educational pathways, usually beyond the university degree to get people qualified and stay up to date.

Ongoing CPD Standards Office accreditation of training, coaching and educational providers will continue to provide the proof it’s learning you can trust, and independently certify the quality of a course.

Paired with blockchain, we can go one step further in providing transparent information to deliver the “right person, right course, right grade” evidence needed to confirm to employers that an individual’s educational achievements are correct.

Blockchain enables standardisation and verification of online learning at the click of a button. The data that is stored within each block can include the following:

  • The sender (the course provider and details of the e-learning undertaken),
  • The receiver (the individual delegate or student, and details of when they undertook the learning)
  • The pass rate and / or grade achieved

Overall, the most important takeaway from understanding the combination of blockchain, CPDSO accreditation and e-learning means it is near impossible for any transaction to be hacked, and the block information changed. Therefore, if someone fails their course, it is marked on the blockchain in a timeless, untouchable block of information.

E-Learning Powered By A New Engine

Moving forward, blockchain will begin to drive e-learning with a new engine. It helps solve the problem of businesses searching for the best online learning for their colleagues.

We predict that, post-COVID-19 and the 2020 online learning boom, business leaders will be expected to provide increasing amounts of training – either feeding the new thirst for continuous online education, or countering the looming threat of recession and redundancies.

During summer 2020, it is critical for business leaders to keep staff educated and professionally razor-sharp by offering ongoing CPD opportunities. This will give business leaders the agility to become innovative and proactive within the market, and in the face of aggressive competition. Organisations that don’t invest in CPD during these critical years of technological change will shrivel, rather than survive and thrive.

It is important to keep in mind that not all e-learning are good learning experiences, and there are even some scams out there. These might be:

Non-existent colleges and courses 

Unscrupulous businesses set up a company with a name that mirrors a high-quality British education organisation and their heritage. The word ‘college’ is unprotected so it is easy to create a site, sell a course which subsequently doesn’t appear.

Bogus qualifications

Some scammers advertise professional qualifications that meet the Department of Education’s National Educational Framework.  With clever digital marketing they easily hook unsuspecting consumers, by selling a ‘qualification’ that once completed and an individual has ‘passed’ the assessment, the professional certificate or licence fails to materialise leaving the consumer stranded, having wasted their time and money.

Unfortunately, there is no government body that can oversee these scams, and this is where the CPD Standards Office independently verifies and promotes accredited high-quality courses.

The Future Of E-learning With Blockchain

Blockchain will solve the problem of low-quality education, and stop the potential for people pretending they have undertaken a course – in order to secure a new role or promotion.

Until now it has always been relatively easy to construct a fake or embellished curriculum vitae, and businesses rarely ask for evidence or proof of qualifications.

In order to stay ahead, business leaders must educate themselves about blockchain. Regardless of industry, it will disrupt their organisation shortly, hence a strategic proactive business strategy is critical to navigating these next few years.

Hand In-hand this strategy should be tied to continuous e-learning opportunities, and CPD accreditation. Combined this will provide the recipe for success over the coming decade.

Dress to Impress and Get Deals Done

Posted on June 30, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

Style Tips in the age of Remote-Working and Videoconferencing

 

Since the 23rd of March, being a virtual trainer or coach has not been optional.

CPDSO has seen hundreds of training organisations pivot to online learning, and we are extremely proud of all the creative ideas. Many people used to F2F (face to face) learning have been nervous about delivery and what they should be wearing. We have a few questions and answers about preferred backgrounds, plus what to wear for 1-2-1 sessions; as it is very hard to emulate what we would do in person, plus delegates are in a more relaxed dressing as they remote work.

Alexandra Wood, the first female tailor on Saville Row, a good colleague of CPDSO has kindly provided advice and tips for looking good on camera. The saying “You need to dress for the job you want not the job you are in” – this has never been more important.

Due to the impact that COVID-19 has had on the working world as we knew it, everyone has had to turn to a new solution being online meetings. It all happened in the blink of an eye and faster than we could have anticipated. Zoom were taking sales of over 200 million daily meeting participants, a significant increase to this time last year. It’s safe to say that the virus truly turned people’s heads to the practicality of this online meeting programme. Microsoft’s Skype also saw a 70% increase in its usage across the world. From boardroom meetings to exercise classes, there’s no doubt about it, we’ve all had to change the way we operate in our day to day working life. The question is how do we now dress for the occasion. We discuss:

Depending on which line of business you’re in, will make a significant difference to the way you dress. If you’re in the world of tech you’re likely to already dress more casually than those working in a corporate environment, so lucky for you there won’t be much change here for you. If you’re a lawyer holding online meetings, questions will arise such as – will you still need to wear a full suit?

Our customers who are in two different occupations entirely have different views based on how they usually dress for their work environment. It seems that not too much has changed and is very much business as usual, just in a changed environment.

“Many court hearings and trials are now going ahead remotely. Even though we are no longer physically in court rooms, I’ve found it important to dress with the same level of formality as for an in-person trial, as it impresses upon people  that even though they may just be sat in their living rooms, they are taking part in very real (and often very serious) court proceedings. For meetings, I’ve also found that it’s best to dress smartly: it simply creates a good impression and shows everyone that you take their case seriously.”

Stuart Russell, Communications Director, Media & live production says: “My weekly webinars are hosting between 200-800 people so I’ll always wear a smart shirt for that. No jacket or tie though. For internal meetings I’ll wear a polo shirt at worst. I wouldn’t dream of conducting a meeting in a T-shirt!’’

After we took a poll on our Twitter, there was a clear 50 / 50 divide between men wearing casual clothing and still wearing their smart attire which is interesting.

When dressing for an in person meeting or online, how you wish to represent yourself should be key. Dressing smart is seen as sign of respect. As Tom Ford said: ‘’Dressing well is a form of good manners’’ and we here at Alexandra Wood tend to agree. How you show up to work in person shouldn’t be any different when working via an online system. We run through some of the key points to focus on that apply to both men and women:

Colour

Wear something that lifts your skin tone. Note that the colour black tends to make you look less trustworthy. The salesman wearing all black will make a lot of sales, but no friends! It radiates authority, but creates fear in the process. Blue tends to be the winning colour psychologically, displaying trust, honesty and authority. It has therefore been proven to increase sales and positive relationships. Wear a fresh blue shirt, blue suit or a blue sweater with a crisp white shirt on. When in doubt: keep things simple. 

Practicality

Work with what works. Knitwear is fine but make sure it’s smart and un-crinkled. Shirts are great if you’re disciplined enough to keep them looking crisp. It’s fine to wear the first button or two open but no more or you’ll look too nonchalant. Roll necks tend to work well as they look smart or choose a plain, smart T-shirts are even fine now that it’s getting warmer but only if you’re in a creative field of work. Just make sure it’s fitted, without logos and of a good quality.

Check your scenery

The person you’re talking to will likely be looking just as much around you, as at you, so make sure your surroundings also represent who you are. There’s no need to re-decorate just yet but do be mindful that you’ve got a relatively plain background and needless to say make sure your room is smart and tidy. First impressions count and the ones thereafter too. 

Camera checks

Make sure your web camera is pointing down a touch, rather than up. No one really wants to see your ceiling. Look at the camera and not at the person you’re talking to. By looking at the camera, it looks like you’re talking directly to the person. It does feel slightly odd, as the natural inclination is to look at the person.

Lighting 

Make sure you’re not sat with a window behind you or the light will glare through and make it difficult for the person on the other end to see you plus it’s distracting. If you want to go a step further you can buy a lightbox so that you look gleaming. 

Sound

Make sure you’re in a room that is quiet and doesn’t echo. A room with books or furnishings is ideal, so that the sound quality is good.

Round up

Think about how you wish to represent yourself and try to wear similar clothes to which you’d usually wear to work. Meetings after the crisis may continue to be performed this way for safety and practicality, so this will be useful for now and the future. But most of all, we wish you all well.

Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining: Celebrating CPD for Lockdown Learning

Posted on April 14, 2020 by - CPD Sectors>News

At a time of crisis, learning new and valuable skill could be the distraction needed to get you through this difficult time.   There has never been a more opportune time to undertake Continuous Professional Development (CPD); where you can develop your knowledge and skillsets, proactively learn about industry trends, and keep your professional qualifications and education up to date.

The online learning market is currently booming, with all sorts of learning opportunities and experts sharing their knowledge.  As long as you source your learning from an approved provider, you will discover and enjoy positive benefits whilst educating yourself.

Who Are We?

The Professional Development Consortium is home to the Training Excellence and CPD Standards Office accreditations.  We are the UK’s leading authority for the training and coaching industries, and our accreditation awards recognise learning across all topics, and on a pan-industry basis.

Over the past decade, we have worked with a range of organisations to verify and approve their learning provision.  With technology enabling learning to be delivered over various mediums, the ability to upskill yourself has never been easier.

Proudly Promoting CPD Providers

Within the CPD Standards & Training Excellence membership community, we have accredited thousands of learning activities working with hundreds of training, coaching and educational organisations.

We are proud to have awarded our prestigious accreditations to our global community, who are all committed to providing reliable outstanding learning experiences.

On achieving accredited status, our providers are awarded with an accredited mark to use in their marketing communications and training materials.  These serve as digital trust marks, reassuring you, as the buyer, that the learning activity has received a third-party assessment, and successfully met set criteria.

Sharpening Your Professional Skill Set

As the corona-virus crisis unfolds, and the illness tightens its grip, the UK public is in lockdown and confined to home.  With the Government enforcing social distancing and remote working, ‘normal’ routines for commuting, office working and socialising have been shut down.  As a result, everyone has a more flexible day, with time available to focus on learning.

On the CPD Directory on the cpdstandards.com site –  https://www.cpdstandards.com/accredited-providers/ – you will find a plethora of providers who deliver outstanding online learning across a range of subjects.   From soft skills, to business knowledge, to looking after your mental health, the CPD Standards member community can assist.

Enjoying Positive Benefits from Learning

The long days spent in self-isolation, and the constant worrying national news, can lead us all to be uneasy, anxious and concerned about what may lie ahead.   However, it has been widely documented that engaging in learning develops positive emotional benefits and wellbeing  For example, the European Agenda for Adult Learning, documented in a 2017 paper (Reference 1) outlined that learning can result in a greater sense of self, and optimistic perceptions of work:

Sense of self – feelings of self-worth, self-confidence and self-esteem, satisfaction and happiness with life, aspirations and expectations from life and a sense of control.

Work – higher aspirations to get back to work or get on at work, increased expectations from work, improved skills for work.

Learning = Protecting Your Mental Health

Learning has also been found to be beneficial to mental health, and it is critical to nurture your mind during times of crisis:   A report from the Government Office of Science (Reference 2) gave a comprehensive review of the benefits of learning with regards to positive mental health.  In particular, they demonstrated that adult learning fosters:

  • A sense of identity
  • An ability to cope
  • A feeling of purpose in life
  • A greater level of wellbeing, especially in older adults
  • An increase in life satisfaction
  • Positive changes in mental wellbeing

No Excuses for Lockdown Learning

With copious providers within our accredited CPD Standards and Training Excellence community, and an abundance of learning opportunities available, there really is no excuse for setting aside dedicated time during lockdown, and undertaking some educational learning.  By hunkering down and focusing, you will not only develop your skill and knowledge sets, but also enjoy the wellbeing and work benefits going forwards.

Let us know how you get on!
