#cpd23: CPD in your later career

I found Sheila’s post rather useful. In my mind it’s important to know why I’m learning something: it makes it easier to focus and also might make it easier to learn something. If I don’t know why I’m meant to learn something I find it harder to make it stick. Her point about unconcious incompetence is an important one – that can happen early or late in a career and often it doesn’t get spotted (by the individual in question or their surroundings) but can explain so much, e.g. lack of motivation.

The message that stood out to me the most: “Continuing to make your job part of your CPD. In other words: going for new and different opportunities that will force you to reassess what you are doing and learn new things.”
