Courses for Norlanders
Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
As Norlanders you are encouraged to undertake regular Continuing Professional Development (CPD) to ensure that you are keeping up to date with current practice.
Courses, like these offered by Norland, will enable you to show on your CV that you have continued to develop your skills as early years professionals and that you have kept up to date with current best practice.
All Norlanders must also keep up to date with their:
- DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) certificate (every 3 years)
- Paediatric First Aid certificate (every 3 years)
- Child Protection certificate
As part of the CPD programme, we offer a 2 day Paediatric First Aid course.
Norland Agency can also help you to arrange a new DBS certificate if yours is out of date.
Norlanders consistently say that our CPD courses are not only essential in keeping their knowledge and practice up to date but also a great way to share practice with others, catch up with old friends and meet some new ones.
Some of our most recent positive feedback:
"I really enjoyed the course and feel it has given me motivation and emphasized how important it is to do CPD."
"I love the fact that there is always a mix of backgrounds and ages, with only Norland in common. But everybody is relaxed and gets on."
