Global CPD Professional Development Process
Global CPD operations process includes analysis, planning, implementing, and evaluating professional development. This four-step continuing process cycle helps to ensure that professional development opportunities respond to institutions’ needs and that experience and feedback guide the design and planning of subsequent activities.
Analysis and Assessment
Global CPD specialists spend a whole day at your educational institution, identifying key people, interviewing managers, surveying employees, and talking with you about your training needs. We want to understand your strategic goals, gauge your HR challenges, identify skill gaps, and find out what’s holding your institution back from being even more effective.
Training and Curriculum Development
This is where we really shine – in developing training specific to your needs. Global CPD uses an approach that respects the availability and learning styles of your employees, allowing them to pick and choose courses and modules that work for them while still delivering the learning they want and need. This can include, but is not limited to, self-assessment surveys with personal feedback, listening to podcasts, watching and responding to video-based instruction, attending in-class lectures and workshops, and engaging in microteaching, simulation games and role-playing.
All Global CPD training packages involve a combination of delivery methods: in person, online in real time, and self-paced computer-based training.
Approval and Implementation
Once we have your training developed, we’ll give you an opportunity to test it before implementing with your staff. When your feedback is incorporated, we’ll establish a schedule for rolling out the training and set benchmarks for completion. Then, let the training begin!
Every training package Global CPD designs includes an evaluation component. Not only do we evaluate your employees’ learning through testing and one-to-one assessment, we ask you and your staff to evaluate us: Did the training meet your expectations? Did it solve a specific problem or problems? What could we do better next time?
