CPD Management

The CPD management module in Stedfast has been designed to allow education and training providers to manage and record staff CPD.


Recording CPD

Each CPD record has information about the activity, what professional standards it helps develop, the costs, venue and number of CPD hours. The CPD record is also aligned to organisational development areas.

CPD Approvals

CPD requests are approved by either a line manager, the HR coordinator or the Stedfast system administrator. Reports track the number of CPD hours that each member of staff has completed annually.

Performance Alignment

As well as managing CPD activities, Stedfast also has a staff performance module that allows organisations to set out performance objectives and then conduct staff appraisals against the.

CPD Certification

CPD certification can be uploaded to the individuals users records. This makes it easy to show these to awarding bodies and OFSTED. Staff can also provide feedback on the value of each activity.

Who can use the CPD module?

The CPD module can be used by any organisation. All organisations should have a CPD plan in place for all staff. This is typically a minimum of 30 hours per year for education and training organisations.

How does the approval process work?

Staff members can request CPD activities, and the request is then sent to their line manager, who can accept or reject it. CPD activities can also be added directly by the line manager or the HR coordinator.

What is CPD alignment?

CPD activities can be aligned with organisation development areas and staff performance objectives. This ensures that there is a purpose to the CPD activity.

Organisational development areas are identified as the key areas for focus development. CPD activities can be aligned with them.

How do we monitor CPD?

There are several different reports available to the system administrator and HR coordinator to allow them to track CPD for all staff.

Do we need this for OfSTED?

Absolutely. You will need to demonstrate to OfSTED that staff have development plans that support their development and the delivery of high-quality teaching and learning. More information can be found in the Education Inspection Framework.
