Continuing Professional Development (CPD) 

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the term used to describe the learning activities professionals engage in to develop and enhance their abilities. It enables learning to become conscious and proactive, rather than passive and reactive. Professional development can include a wide range of activities and is not limited to just formal training, therefore we try to provide a range of resources and events to suit all. 

Face to Face Events 

Our face to face CPD events provide the opportunity for active learning on a specific topic/area. 

We aim to provide these quarterly with some of our previous events being:- 

  • Topping up your Toolkit 
  • Clean Language 
  • Successful Remote Coaching 
  • Team Coaching 
  • Working With Emotion 

 Our January 2020 CPD event is Coaching and Mentoring Leaders in a VUCA World. 

Podcasts 

Following recent survey feedback, many of our coaches and mentors expressed an interest in being able to access some virtual forms of CPD. 

Our Podcast series has been developed and recorded by Jackie Arnold with the aim of supporting coaches and mentors to be working at their BEST ‘Build Engage Support Trust’™. 

 There are six podasts in the series, being launched from November 2019 to Match 2020.

Supervision 

Coaching and Mentoring can be a lonely business and having supervision can be a welcome time for you. It is time to mull over what’s been happening in the work, whether it’s felt straightforward, slightly puzzling or downright challenging.  Just talking out loud about what’s been going on can bring unexpected clarity to something you weren’t even thinking was difficult! 

All of the professional bodies recommend regular supervision as an essential part of being a coach / mentor.   

Peer Group Supervision 

At the South West Leadership Academy, we have registered coaches who have attended an Introduction to Coaching Supervision Programme. They will be supporting us during our face to face events, with our aim of providing small group peer supervision. 

We aim to provide face to face events quarterly and our January 2020 CPD event is Coaching and Mentoring Leaders in a VUCA World, followed in the afternoon by peer group supervision. 

 Virtual Supervision 

To continue to increase coaching capability and capacity in the south west region, and more importantly to maintain quality, we are providing coaching supervision action learning sets that will take place virtually by WebEx. 

These virtual supervision sessions are held several times throughout the year with our next session being held on Monday 2nd March 2020 13.00 – 15.00. 

 All opportunities are advertised and accessible through our Coaching and Mentoring Registers.
