Trainers and coaches spend an awful lot of time thinking about others, and sometimes not enough time on themselves. Self-care is important for everyone and should be a priority for all.
With the challenges over the last 18 months, it has highlighted how important self-care actually is. The challenges of COVID19 and adapting businesses to the new way of working have put huge pressure on all business owners, without taking time to look after themselves in the process. Creating this balance can be hard but it’s vital everyone has time out in their diaries to think about themselves for a moment.
Here we have collated our top 5 tips to think about when scheduling some self-care for yourself:
Make Time For Yourself
Make time for yourself every single day. Open your calendar, and schedule some time to fit a bit of self-care into your day. This could be 10 minutes to yourself which can make a HUGE difference.
We are all guilty of spending too much time at the desk and not taking enough breaks to go outside. So on your break, get yourself outside for a walk in the fresh air to clear your mind before getting back to the desk. Another tip is to schedule 15 minutes out of your calendar in the morning and afternoon to give yourself some time to have a cup of coffee outside. (or tea if you prefer!)
Do Something Creative
If you are starting to feel burned out at work, take the time to do something creative. Dig out those art projects you have been putting off doing, or read that book you haven’t got round to starting. Get those creative juices flowing and allow yourself to enjoy some me-time doing something you love. By doing these things, you are boosting your happiness and therefore your serotonin levels which is always a good thing!
Starting the day positively can really boost your mood and make you have a more productive day. Each morning recite your 3 favourite affirmations to yourself with gusto and you will find that you can help break unhealthy thought patterns and create a new positive belief system. You can place them around your home and work area as mini-reminders to motivate, inspire, and centre you throughout the day…
(affirmations are positive statements that affirm how you want to feel or show up in the world.)
Prioritise Your Mental Health
It is the single most important thing you can do for yourself and your health. When your mental health is treated and cared for, you can focus on doing what you love most— delivering training. After a busy day of training, take the time to relax and destress from the day and clear your mind using techniques like meditation, take a bath or simply read a book.
Last week CPDSO ran a webinar in collaboration with Marion Hewitt, a positive psychology practitioner, and award-winning coach. We discussed prioritising self-care and considered ideas and options to build our personal self-care/wellbeing plan that is realistic, beneficial, and enjoyable.

It can be easy to get stuck in the same cycle of delivering training online that you have always delivered. So how can you mix it up?
Here we have put together five thinking points to help you make your online training more relevant and attractive to clients surfing the web:
Re-structure Your Courses
Instead of running a 3-day course over consecutive days, allow/encourage delegates to split up the course so that they do 1 day a week, or once a month for example. It provides them with options and can be easier as a trainer to do when delivering online courses as you can make parts of your courses Evergreen.
Put in place collaborative tools so that delegates can get support from you as the trainer and other delegates between training sessions. Your courses will be far more attractive to those thinking about buying as they can be totally tailored around them.
Offer Courses As Different Lengths & Formats
Face-to-face courses are traditionally offered as a one-day course. Mixing up the length of the course by going online gives you many possibilities, it can work well for those delegates who find it hard to get time off work, or are unable to get to the training course location.
A distanced learning version can replace or go alongside your F2F course for blended delivery. You can also write an eBook, which will be available with the online course as another collaborative tool.
Offer Free Taster Webinars in the Evening
Your prospect delegates will always want an insight into your course, so why not offer a one-hour overview of the course that runs in the evening as a webinar. Lots of people do not have the time during the day due to work commitments and their personal lives, so making the short taster session available once they are at home will work for a lot of people.
ADDITIONAL TIPS: Include email and phone breaks into your training. Build specific breaks into your training to allow delegates to go off-screen and make/take calls and check their email. You’ll get more relaxed delegates, knowing they have dealt with the important stuff at the office.
Build In Networking Into Your Training
If one of your delegates comes away from your training with a business opportunity from one of the other delegates, you get the credit. Take time to understand who is attending each training course and who they may find it useful to meet.
Also, use social media to your advantage. Set up a LinkedIn group for delegates attending this course (along with past delegates) where they can learn from each other and network after the training has finished. Connecting past delegates with current delegates is a very powerful way to re-engage previous clients and give new clients great value. You can also encourage your delegates to share what they have learned on their social media accounts and tag you.
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) has a huge variety of benefits to a business or an individual. In today’s working world, there is a lot more competition than there used to be 10 years ago, so if you want to succeed you need to stand out from the crowd.
For businesses operating in highly competitive markets, standing out is the utmost importance to gain market share and be number one against competitors. All businesses compete in different ways, for example one may compete on price or others may compete on unique value propositions.
One way to do this is to take advantage of becoming a CPD Accredited provider. There are over 2000+ professional bodies, institutes and regulators who have individual CPD policies for members to undertake to stay registered and be able to practice, which therefore brings up a need for CPD accredited courses.
There are huge benefits to becoming a CPD accredited organisation, these include:
- Distinguishes your business from other competitors in the market
- Ensures standards remain high in the workplace
- Keeps employees knowledge and skills up to date
- Helps to achieve business objectives
- A high level of professionalism
- Creates greater work engagement/retention from employees who can see you are investing time in their careers
CPD accreditation can be a major benefit to your business in many ways but it firstly, puts you on top of your competition. Learners looking for CPD accreditation are always going to choose your accredited courses over ones that aren’t. It looks great that you have been independently assessed and undergone a rigorous assessment of your training courses to ensure excellence in the content you are delivering. Many regulated sectors such as finance, law, medicine and construction have mandatory CPD policies so professionals within this sector have CPD requirements to meet, and are always going to choose a course where they can receive CPD points over ones that cannot.
Undergoing CPD accreditation for your business ensures that you are delivering high quality training that meets expectations for all learners. It indicates that you have reached standards and benchmarks to offer your training into mandated CPD sectors that professionals are able to gain CPD points from. Accredited training demonstrates the highest standards of educational quality as well as a commitment to delivering great learning experiences.
A CPD accredited business inspires trust in prospective customers as it displays its commitment to the highest standards of professional development for its employees. The potentially huge, positive impact of this upfront investment on the long term profitability of a business should not be underestimated.
The Dawn of Continuous Learning
The process of undergoing continuous professional learning is encouraged and attested by professional bodies and associations of which the Royal Medical Colleges (established in the 16th century) were the first.
It was only towards the end of the 18th century, however, that the demand for reskilling within the lifetime of a professional’s career exploded – with many professional bodies being founded during the first industrial revolution. And for good reason: the increasing specialisation of labour, coupled with the manufacturing boom which demanded frequent changes in production processes, meant that factory workers and their superiors needed to learn new skills continuously and in short spaces of time.
The rate of professional growth thus became more dynamic as society transformed, highlighted by the following two Industrial revolutions which spanned the 19th and 20th centuries.
From that point onwards, the rate of sector growth has sped up across the board (unless the profession became obsolete). The innovation of new sub fields for professionals to explore during their career lifetime has now gone so far as to introduce the possibility of an individual needing to be a part of multiple professional bodies or associations.
Today, there are currently over 1000 provisional bodies across the UK alone. A number that is expected to increase over the next 4th industrial revolution.
For this reason, professional bodies are now expecting more than ever that their members stay upskilled by ongoing Continued Professional Development (CPD).
The term CPD was born out of professional bodies who continue to regulate standards of practicing professionals in their fields. This occurred in parallel with many professional bodies moving from a more relaxed reskilling model, in which they allow their members to complete self directed CPD and only put forward a suggested amount of hours for the professional to complete, to a more demanding one where all CPD undertaken must be industry specific and many now have a mandatory minimum amount of hours.
This trend further reflects the speed at which society and the many professional sectors that make it up are evolving. So fast, in fact, that the lines between academia and professional application are blurring. CPD is the solution that naturally merges these two worlds.
CPD in The Age of The Degree
Let’s consider some of the ways in which CPD facilitates the growing need for efficient reskilling of an expanding workforce:
- Course length – Courses are short and, more often than not, can be taken alongside work commitments
- Relevance to current field demands – the training is written and led by practitioners rather than people that only know the theory
- Flexibility of course creation – the course can be created and implemented in a streamlined way – with no need for red tape
- Accreditation – Training providers can opt to get their training quality checked by a third party accreditation company to assure the delegates of the high standard of training they offer. Find out more
- Ascribed worth – This is the worth that the delegates place on having completed the training
The last point is perhaps the only one in which a university degree has a clear inferred advantage. As mentioned in the definition this is not necessarily the worth an employer places on it but the worth ascribed by the delegate/professional themselves.
Degrees are converted accolades of life, known and respected ubiquitously for centuries. However, CPD training is much shorter and mainly undergone to gain applicable knowledge rather than a status. For this reason people are more interested in completing CPD training fast to gain the knowledge to apply to their role.
Fair enough, people do not want a stack of certificates in a drawer they rarely open. And the walls of professionals are usually filled with tools that help them outline the future, such as planning charts and visualisation boards. So not much space for the hundreds of CPD certificates one would amass over a lifetime of professional training upgrades.
Despite this, the relevance of CPD training remains and will continue to grow as a need for employees to perform and subsequently a demand for employers to supply.
Future-Proofing CPD in the Digital Age
Being in the digital age, this is of course a possibility that has been explored, created and one that the CPD Standards Office is supporting to establish as a systematic way to demonstrate skill growth to current and future employees.
In particular, we are looking to shift from today’s paper-based CPD certification model (which suffers from the problems highlighted above as well as a significant rate of document loss/damage) to a hybrid model, which combines paper certificates with their “digital twins”: secure, tamper-proof and always-available CPD certificates which can be instantly verified on-demand by employers and regulators. In this way, we are able to make the most of the advantages of paper-based certificates (more tangible and robust certifications) whilst also addressing the demands of a digital society which enables and favours greater efficiency.
The digital certificates we are offering all our members can be issued with ease thanks to an easy-to-use web application that accepts Excel spreadsheets. When a CPD provider issues their digital certificates in this way, each learner receives an email containing a QR code. This QR code can be easily shared on CVs, business cards, social media or on any other medium required. A simple scan of a given QR code will reveal the details of the matching certificate in a matter of seconds. No need to scan, hand over or present paper certificates any longer. Moreover:
- Thanks to our use of Blockchain technology, the data in the certificate cannot be tampered with. Any attempt to alter its details will result in a mismatch with the genuine certificate fingerprint on the Blockchain and therefore a failed verification.
- CPD verifiers can always be sure that the verification of the certificate is genuine, thanks to our use of public-key cryptographic methods when signing the certificate as well as a clear indication of the patronage of the platform by CPDSO.
In rolling out digital-twin certificates, we have thought carefully about the needs of learners too, especially the fact that CPD certificates are likely to fall in and out of relevance at different stages of their careers. As a result, loss or damage to a paper CPD certificate can result in significant hardship when proving suitability for a given job. Our “Portfolio” feature goes a long way in mitigating this risk: each digitally issued CPD certificate can be added by its recipient to their so-called “digital portfolio” on the platform as it is received. In doing so, the learner can build a digital record of their CPD certificates and points accrued over the course of their career. Each certificate can be downloaded on demand and even an entire CPD portfolio can be shared with just one QR code or link.
As this article has shown, professional attestation has undergone fundamental shifts over the course of the centuries, and this decade is no different. Paper-based certifications possess unique advantages which should not be lost. However, in an ever more decentralised and digital world of work, made even more so by the pandemic, a new, parallel certification paradigm is needed to cater for both the large volumes of highly-valuable CPD qualifications and the renewed needs of employers. The CPD Standards Office, together with its technical partner, Gradbase (https://cpdso.gradba.se) has made a fundamental move in this direction, by deploying a “hybrid” certification model which so far has provided value to many of its members and which we hope will continue to evolve and become the de-facto standard for CPD.
This article was written by Kirstie Walker of The CPD Standards Office in conjunction with Alberto De Capitani at Gradbase. CPDSO are working with Gradbase, a startup based in London, UK that aims to digitise and tamper-proof all forms of personal certification using Blockchain technology. In so doing, hiring processes are made more efficient and fraud is minimised.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a mandatory requirement for over half a million individual members of construction professional bodies and member institutions. CPD has been long-established within the construction sector, and many professional bodies have had long standing CPD requirements in place.
The construction industry needs to ensure that the knowledge and skills of construction professionals are maintained to ensure they remain professional individuals and stay up to date. This could mean improving on current skills, developing them to a new level, or it could mean learning new ones that will allow that professional’s job role to expand or prepare them for potential promotion.
For many years, the construction industry has increased its commitment to ongoing development. Many professional bodies and institutions have introduced mandatory CPD requirements and different methodologies for doing CPD.
For example, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) requires all chartered members to undertake at least 35 hours of CPD per year. The RIBA regularly audits member records to check compliance.
The CPD undertaken could include:
- Online and F2F training courses
- Reading reports, magazine, websites or other publications
- Attending conferences, seminars or workshops
- Supervising apprentices/students
- Training other members of staff
Technology is continuously developing so there are new methods of construction always being introduced and therefore a need for training and development of these skills is necessary. CPD gives professionals the opportunity to increase their understanding of the industry and keep up to date with latest changes and product developments. Lifelong learning is the new normal with so many updates and new developments happening all the time, thus why CPD is so important to a career in the construction industry.
With advances in technology, changes in regulation, and increasing specialisation in various fields, CPD is becoming the normal for many construction professionals looking to get ahead in their careers, and also for many employers who are hoping to meet their business objectives.
Construction being a fast paced industry, it needs to keep the profession up to date on workplace changes and education for all professionals aligned to building and construction. CPD is a widely recognised and successful method of education which highlights the importance of undertaking CPD requirements aligned to each professional body. This requires companies who provide training to be able to issue CPD points so that learners can put this to their CPD record, thus why having your training activities is more important than ever.
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. One of the benefits of cpd accreditation is that it 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.
Responding to the demand to get training events back on track for 2020, we have been working hard over these past weeks at the CPDSO, in partnership with a great CPDSO member Barry Bailey, from Mobile Team Challenge (MTC), to pull together a tool to help get all of our providers back in a F2F environment.
The CPDSO have created a detailed guidance document, in line with the current Government recommendations and utilising the expertise from some of our great CPD colleagues, which we are pleased to announce will be available to our members next week!
Please find more information on what to expect from our guidelines in this summary below:
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.

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