‘Designing programmes which enable CPD allows professionals to continuously refresh critical thinking and skills.'
Oxford Saïd has been accredited as a provider of continuing professional development (CPD) by the CPD Certification Service, meaning that the School adheres to the body’s standards.
The CPD standards include providing clear learning objectives, as well as structured and methodical courses. Accreditation means that the School is part of a network of providers that can be used by organisations and individual practitioners to maintain, develop, or enhance their abilities.
The CPD Certification Service, which assessed 14 of the School’s programmes for individual certification, is an independent body that was established in 1996 and works across all sectors and disciplines. It defines CPD learning as being conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive.
Caroline Williams, Director, Open Executive Education said: ‘Designing programmes which enable CPD allows professionals to continuously refresh critical thinking and skills is a critical part of Oxford Said’s mission.
We want the Oxford portfolio to bring new opportunities to CPD professionals who will immerse themselves in a global peer group across 172 countries.
We are delighted to have achieved this milestone and very much look forward to working closely with the CPD Certification Service to accredit more programmes over the coming months.’
