The Society recommends all designers to undertake Continuing Professional Development in order to:
- benefit by ensuring you adhere to best professional design practice
- progress your careers
- enhance your proposition to clients
- fulfil your responsibility to maintaining the well-being of society and the environment
For Registered Chartered Designers, no matter to which design organisation or body you belong, substantial CPD is an annual requirement.
To assist you in undertaking valid CPD the Society has developed the CSD Knowledge Bank which will curate the very best knowledge available from CSD partners, suppliers and providers in your design specialism. All of those listed will be experts in their particular field and able to offer you advice and consultancy on a range of topics that will fulfil your CPD requirements.
The CSD Knowledge Bank is not a ‘directory’ – it is your ‘resource’ – and in keeping with the CSD brand of endorsing the very highest of standards and professionalism, only those suppliers and providers who pass the rigorous scrutiny set by the Society will be featured in the CSD Knowledge Bank.
Every asset in the Knowledge Bank identifies against the framework for professional design practice CPSK™ to ensure it is relevant to your CPD needs.
If you are a CSD member or Chartered Designer, undertaking CPD with CSD Knowledge Bank experts, it will be fully integrated into your online CPD audit and plan within your online portfolio.
