What is Continuing Professional Development?

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is the process of continually updating and improving your knowledge and skills throughout your professional life. Typically it takes place through some form of training or learning activity, and is standard practice for members of professional organisations.

The RAD CPD Scheme

The RAD introduced a mandatory CPD scheme in July 2013. Participation in the scheme is mandatory for teachers registered with the RAD, however, our CPD activities are open to all. Teachers will need to take part in a minimum number of CPD activities each year in order to retain their Registered Teacher status. This requirement must be completed in the CPD year, between 1 September and 31 August.

Our CPD Activities

Our portfolio of CPD activities is designed to support dance teachers and dance professionals in developing their skills and expand their knowledge of the dance and dance education sector. These activities are open to all, and take place both in the UK and across the world.
