Continuing Professional Development

What is CPD?

Continuing Professional Development, referred to in common usage as CPD is any general training relevant to profession specific practice.  CPD modules are designed to enhance professional knowledge, skills and abilities.

Which CPD courses are available?

CPD-Philanthropy  offers a suite of  short course modules within each of three areas: Legal CPD, Management  and Strategy. 

We encourage you to build your own training programme by combining modules to reflect your requirements. 

CPD-Philanthropy is a network of Barristers and Consultant Professionals. We have a unique capability to provide the courses professionals require through experienced and distinguished practitioners.

Are there Legal CPD requirements for solicitors?

The Irish Law  Society (2017) states that solicitors annual minimum CPD requirement is 20 hours, of which at least three hours must be linked to management/professional skills development and at least two* hours must comprise of regulatory matters. The onus of recording and maintaining accurate records is on each solicitor.

Can I obtain a 'Certificate of attendance' ?

CPD-Philanthropy issues ‘Certificates of attendance’ for each CPD module attended. Certificates include the attendee’s name pre-printed by CPD-Philanthropy, the date, time and duration of the training, category of CPD training provided and signed  by the Director and a topic relevant Network Member.
