CPD Curration for the People Occupation

CPD Curration for the People Occupation

This blog is here to give you a list of items/activities that you could use as a basis for your CPD log. I'll only list items that I think will help with DPG assignments or support you in the workplace. I'm mainly looking for facts and statistics that you can quote in your work. Thus providing you with useful references for assignments and ammunition to support points you might be trying to prove in the workplace.

I'll post an updated image of my CPD log in the thread from time to time along with an updated list of curated and evaluated items/activities. There you go, my gift to you: your CPD is taken care of. It's that easy.

 

The main image for this blog is my CPD log. What does your CPD log look like? I'd love to it if you commented with a screengrab of your log.

If you want to automate your CPD log and make it cloud-based like mine (above), log in to CareerBursts (via this page: https://bit.ly/32hukx6 ) and hit Record your CPD  once you've logged in.

  • Hi Everyone. 

    As ever, this week I've combed through the endless impersonal industry email newsletters to bring you what I think will help you:

    a) as you search for quotable facts and figures you can use in your studies and workplace

    b) as you look for legitimate reading to add to your CPD log

    c) both of the above!

    1. If you are looking at strategy and what is on the horizon that could impact your organisation there are plenty of figures that you could use on an article about the government’s plan green plan for 2030. The banning of petrol and diesel engines, job creation and tree planting are just some of the topics. Let’s hope Boris can keep to his word (for once). Take a look: https://bit.ly/36NJsUi
    2. HR Solutions published a page at the end of October titled: Brexit: the latest implications for HR. It’s worth a read to stay up to date on issues like processing data, recruitment and EU nationals already working in the UK. There are key dates on there and links to gov sites. Particularly handy for those studying CHR. Take a look: https://bit.ly/3f9MrKA
    3. Following on from the Brexit article above, I took the bait and went to the gov website about the points-based immigration system to see how it affects recruitment and labour markets. It’s heavy (as you’d expect) but there are visuals and easy to follow tables – and it’s the official source of course. Useful for those studying CHR and RMT. Here’s a link: https://bit.ly/2ILI0tH
    4. HR Solutions come to the rescue again with an article that rounds up figures on the impact of COVID. There are growth statistics expressed in percentages, monetary value and Dow Jones points. There is also a paragraph drawing together the impact on certain industries including airlines, haulage and charities. Here is a link: https://bit.ly/38SLXY1
    5. Billed as “the only free, independent and confidential benchmarking tool for L&D professionals”, Emerald Works’ Learner Intelligence Report is going to be useful if you are studying trends in L&D. The survey report gives you statistics you can use around questions such as: How did you study the most recent learning / training course you attended? What barriers restrict you from learning at work? And what motivates you to learn at work? The answers are represented over time: 2017, 18, 19 and during the pandemic. There’s a lot of good stuff here. Set yourself a good 30 minutes aside to read it through.

    Here's my CPD log for November so far:

    I'd love to see a screenshot of yours in the replies below! 😃

    Stay on the CPD path with me - it's easy!

  • My usual information hunting ground of newsletters have been a little fruitless this week. But that hasn’t stopped me digging around and finding new information to use and store in the old grey matter as stuff that will develop my capabilities – otherwise known as CPD. Take a look at what I found and use it to fuel your CPD.

    1. The CIPD Autumn Labour market report was released on 9th There are lots of useful stats for all elements of workforce planning, for example, the CIPD list alternatives to redundancies that organisations are considering and how popular those alternatives are. Take a look: https://bit.ly/3nhdJ4p
    2. I pressed Reputation in our new Career Development area and fell down the most rewarding rabbit hole I’ve been down since I last Googled ‘bichon frise panda’ (don’t do it!). There are some genuine easy tips there on how to promote your career and build a profile – which is so massively important in the current climate. If you’ve already logged in to CareerBursts, follow this link: https://bit.ly/3k18La0. If you need to log in for the first time, there are instructions here: https://bit.ly/32hukx6
    3. The Living Wage is set to increase. Quickly find out when and to what extent by clicking here.
    4. The Furlough scheme is never far from the news right now. Did you know that the government is reviewing whether employers should be eligible to claim for employees serving contractual or statutory notice periods? Find out more here: https://bit.ly/3eWCJv8
    5. CIPD Online Annual Conference. I couldn’t get the exhibitor search to search exhibitors and the Free learner page was blank. I got a little frustrated if I’m honest and wandered off into the internet somewhere. Sorry: nothing to report.
    6. ‘The UK economy grew by a record 15.5% in the third quarter’. This comes from ONS data that I spotted via an article on Sky News. We all realise that the economy would have picked up after the first lockdown and regressed due to the second one – but you might be looking for stats to show it, this should give you what you need. This will be useful for anyone doing SWOT and PESTLE for their organisations. Here’s a link: https://bit.ly/3lnEgfW

    Here's a quick look at my CPD log. Just the two entries this week but that's all it takes to satisfy the CIPD:

    8155141660?profile=RESIZE_930x 

     

    That’ll do for this week. Soon be Christmas.

  • So what CPD have I done this week? This week it has been mainly research and curation from newsletters. I feel like I’ve seen more emailed newsletters than the US have seen postal votes. I couldn’t move for the things. Delete them all, I say! Newsletters, I mean – not votes (they should be counted because that's how voting works). I’ve run bundles of HR and L&D newsletters through my rudimentary filtering system (my brain) so that you don’t have to – I bring you what’s left so that you can use it for your CPD! 

    Read the items below, 

    1. I stumbled across the LinkedIn Workplace Learning Report 2018 which has some great stats that you could use to support the cause of things like ‘Learning in the flow of work’ where it states that half of the 4000 people survey want there learning at the point of need. However, the 2020 report is now available and I haven’t looked at this yet – let me know what you think. You have to register to download the latter. Here links to both: (2018)https://bit.ly/2I6BYmz and (2020)https://bit.ly/2HZ64bU
    2. Trends in L&D has been big on my radar this week. I found a page full of jumping-off points to other reports which all look perfectly quotable. For example, there’s a link to a Deloitte report with great little nuggets, such as 77% of leaders prefer training existing staff rather than recruiting new staff to increase talent in their organisation. There are loads of diagrams too (which could be useful!). The webpage is maybe a 5-minute read but if you click on all the links you’ll be there for a while. Access it here: https://bit.ly/3mXHVlf
    3. Looking for the biggest trends in HR this month? The HRGrapevine ‘Hot or Not’ is pretty hot for once – if you’ll excuse the fact that they use that photo at the top of the page on loads of their posts (it’s at the bottom too). Get a new photo! Anyway, there are links to evidence to support an argument for working from home and flexible working as well as evidence that many people think the answer to mental well-being is in the hands of robots (seriously!). You have to sign up to get access to the article, it’s free and you get bombarded with newsletters as a reward. Here’s a link: https://bit.ly/2GscwaN
    4. The HR Observer newsletter put me on to a page that professed a peak of 40% employee engagement which has never been so high according to a Gallup study. It’s notable, and a potential starting point for a discussion in an assignment, that they’ve managed to link the murder of George Floyd to a subsequent dip in engagement. There’s also some brief info on the page about how Google, Amazon, Twitter and Facebook are continuing with remote working (which the page attempts to link to increased engagement. The rest of the page has some stats that made me pull my confused face – and the newsletter had the same effect. So I’d skip the rest if I were you; only go to this page if you need info on what I’ve mentioned. Here’s the page: https://bit.ly/3eswcba
    5. Not from newsletters, just something I’ve been using a lot lately is https://bitly.com/. I take a website URL paste is onto Bitly and then Bitly immediately returns a much shorter version of the URL. As you can see above – it saves loads of space! It’s free.
    6. Again, not a newsletter: I pressed Reputation in our new Career Development area and fell down the most rewarding rabbit hole I’ve been down since I last Googled ‘bichon frise panda’ (don’t do it!). There are some genuine easy tips there on how to promote your career and build a profile – which is so massively important in the current climate. If you’ve already logged in to CareerBursts, follow this link: https://bit.ly/3k18La0. If you need to log in for the first time, there are instructions here: https://bit.ly/32hukx6

    That’ll do for this week. Stay connected!
