Certified CPD following global CPD principles
Dotted around the site and in the latest version of our documentation (v2) you might have noticed a new logo.
This is a globally recognised mark of CPD quality. It has been earned by the Social School Award after being independently assessed by The CPD Certification Service as the leading independent CPD accreditation institution operating across industry sectors to complement the Continuing Professional Development policies of professional institutes and academic bodies globally.
In short, as the Social School Award is now a certified self-study course it ensures that whoever does the work in school will get a great CPD experience that’s been quality assured and certified for their professional benefit. Great CV material.
But while taking part is a great self-study CPD opportunity for the lead person we also ensure that the school is publicly celebrated and recognised through it’s new Social School Award status certification, plaque & approved logos. There were also rumours of nice chocolates for staffrooms too but that hasn’t been confirmed!
So, yet another reason to get registered and get cracking with a very unique CPD opportunity.
