The CIPD assessment strategy for the Professional Development Scheme (PDS) consists of a mix of assignments, workshops, continuing professional development (CPD) and examinations for each subject. This qualification is at postgraduate (Masters) level, and is aimed at producing ‘thinking performers’, as defined by the CIPD The thinking performer typically plays an active role at any level in the business and has a sustained capacity for efficiency in performance. He or she is always ready to challenge current procedures to achieve continuous improvement and maintain a clear understanding of, and commitment to, strategy and purpose while taking a consistently ethical approach.
