Welcome to our new CPD and Career Development area

Hi

I've been looking forward to bringing this to you for quite some time! We have now launched our CPD and Career Development Forum which gives you free access to CareerBursts. Amongst other fantastic tools, you'll find:

- A cloud-based CPD tracker which time stamps your work and remembers your CIPD number. It's so much easier to use than a WORD template and the CIPD will accept this instead of the WORD template. 

- Personalised evidence-based career advice for the short, medium and long term.

- Self-assessment tools that don't just list your strengths and weaknesses - they explore them in-depth and help you to build an agenda for development.

- Opportunites to seek out mentors.

- Secure and private space to record your thoughts and development.

 

Community members who are studying with DPG have free access. If you aren't currently studying with us, please enjoy 3-months free access on us. The normal purchase cost of CareerBurst is £100 per year. 

I'll be sharing my journey through CareerBurst in this forum. I hope you will too. I'm excited to know what you think!

      • About four pages on word so far, would it be ok to hand in a combination of both at the end?

         

        • I've been into the LMS this morning. You can upload multiple documents prior to pressing submit (once you press the submit button the system locks and you can't upload anything else). You could do that and then leave a short comment in the box to explain what you've done. I think the assessors will understand. I'm speaking to a few assessors tomorrow so I'll check with them and let you know what they say.

           

  • Would anyone like any pointers on bookmarking CareerBursts or the CPD log page from their desktop or mobile device?

  • I love it already - just logged my first bit of CPD - about learning how to do CPD... Can't wait to explore all the tools and functions in here. 

    • Excellent to see, Victoria Holden 

      I'd love to hear what you think of the articles and career tactics.

      :)

  • Hi Gary,

    I’ve started entering to the new online CPD log and have started copying in my entries from the word document we have. When it comes time for me to submit this at the end of my course. Do I just click the link that says print and save this as a PDF then upload on enable as usual or do you just check this from your end. As I can see that we can now use this tool instead of the word document. So far my experience with it seems to be much better than entering it into word and certainly seems quicker and easier to fill in 4 boxes and upload an attachment if we want to.
    • Hi Matthew Braker 

      I wrote a response for you below, but tagged the wrong Matthew! Sorry about that. Hopefully, you'll see this and all will be well.

      I need more coffee!

      • Hi Gary,

        Thanks for the reply. Not to worry I think we all have those Monday morning moments. 

    • Hi Matthew Barr 

      Thanks for the feedback. I'm glad you are finding it easier!

      Yeah, just get hold of the PDF as you've said and upload a copy on the Enable LMS with the other templates for the submission. Use the PDF as an alternative to the WORD document.

      I checked with our QA team before we went live with this CPD log and they assured me that the CIPD will accept either log format.

      :)

      • Hi, wrong Matt. 

        Good info though.

        Cheers

        Matt
