Growing as an individual and investing in your performance is part of being a professional.
You should not need to be forced into CPD, it is your duty and privilege.
It should be linked to your performance management.
You should be IT literate just as you are pencil literate.
You cannot accept a £30k + paycheque and be a useless waste of oxygen, its immoral.
You should expect to put your hand in your pocket and pay for it.
If you need help with behaviour management you are in the wrong job, its not rocket science, resign.
CPD is your problem.
Get a grip, if you want to be treated like a professional act like one.
