Professional development refers to many types of educational experiences related to an individual’s work. Doctors, lawyers, educators, accountants, engineers, and even Web Designers – people in a wide variety of professions and businesses participate in professional development to learn and apply new knowledge and skills that will improve their performance on the job.
Many fields require members to participate in ongoing learning approved by the profession, sometimes as a requirement for keeping their jobs. Professionals often also voluntarily seek new learning.
By taking ownership of your career and focusing your professional development you will:
- Be better able to recognize opportunity;
- Be more aware of the trends and directions in technology and society;
- Become increasingly effective in the workplace;
- Be able to help, influence and lead others by your example;
- Be confident of your future employability;
- Have a fulfilling and rewarding career.
The importance of continuing professional development should not be underestimated – it is a career-long obligation for practicing professionals.
