* The concept and importance of CPD:
Continuing Professional Development as L&D practitioner is the mean by which we can maintain, improve and broaden our knowledge and skills and develop personal qualities required in our professional life. Also it is a mean of supporting in the workplace to understand more about the environment in which we work, the job we do and how to do it better.
CPD is important to improve knowledge and skills through exposure to new experiences benefit both the individual and the business.
The world is not static and there are new developments in all areas emerging all the time, which are both challenging and exciting. Change gives us a chance to stretch our ability and staying up to date also builds confidence and adds to credibility. As well as staying ahead of competitors for the benefit of the organization we work for. Therefore, through exposure to new initiatives both parties benefit.
* Difference between knowledge, skills and behaviour:
Knowledge is a familiarity with something, which can include facts, information, descriptions, or skills acquired through experience or education. It can refer to the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject.
Skills are the learned capacity to carry out pre-determined results often with the minimum outlay of time, energy, or both. In other words the abilities that one possesses. Behaviour is a manner of behaving or conducting oneself, also response of an individual or group to an action, environment, person or stimulus.
