The world of continuing professional development (CPD) and work-based learning (WBL) is changing fast. Yet two clear themes are emerging: first, professionals – including IT professionals – want recognised career paths with progression routes and structured development programmes; and secondly, employers want evidence and external accreditation of what a person can actually do. Professional bodies have responded by developing skills frameworks. The BCS is no exception here through its participation in E-skills' PROCOM professional competency model and the SFIA Foundation's Skills Framework for the Information Age, not to mention CEN/ISSS' European e-Competence Framework. As individual professionals, we need to reflect on and evaluate our achievements, and identify our own CPD needs. We are all, necessarily, lifelong learners now. This talk focuses of what universities have to offer in this new world of continual professional development and lifelong learning.

This event is free to all.
