As professionals, we have a responsibility to keep our knowledge and skills up to date.  
If you have been meaning to start  CIPR CPD , make time this November with our CPD Kickstart Challenge. From podcasts in the park to weekend webinars, the Kickstart plan will help you to fit CPD into your busy schedule in a way that works for you. 
Learn in bitesize chunks at home, at work or on the move with a choice of 20 of our latest and most popular CPD activities to get you started. 
Set your CPD goals, complete one hour of learning each week, log what you learn in MyCPD and earn 30 CPD points in 30 days. 

Let's get going! 

1. Schedule one hour for learning each week in November. 

2. Plan what you want to learn about. Here is a simple CPD goals template (pdf download)  to help. Once you have written your goals down, add at least one to MyCPD to earn your first 5 CPD points. 
3. Choose your activities from the Kickstart plan below. You can also download the Kickstart plan   (pdf download) and keep it handy.  
4. If the Kickstart activities aren’t right for you, you can search 100s more in the MyCPD platform. 
5. Complete at least one activity each week and record your learning in MyCPD as you go. Each activity is worth 5 CPD points. 

Boost your knowledge, your confidence and your motivation this November with the Kickstart plan.
