How to choose a professional development opportunity


Identify any knowledge or skills gaps relevant to your current role or the role you aspire to. 


Investigate the options to address those gaps. Is it a short program? Is it a certificate? Or is it a degree program?


Consider how you want to learn – face-to-face, online or via webinars?


Ask colleagues and friends what programs, courses and other strategies have been most useful to them.

Really enjoyed the range of topics today. All the presenters were well-researched and provided really beneficial information. Loved the informal style which encouraged open discussion.
