CPD, or Continuing Professional Development, "is a range of learning activities which professionals maintain and develop throughout their career to ensure that they continue to be able to practise safely, effectively, and legally, within their changing scope of practice" (Health and Care Professions Council). This is something I take very seriously - below is my history of CPD from 2006 and I have recently been awarded a distinction in the Masters degree (MSc) in Podiatry.
