New training booking system – CPD / Poole Workforce Development
The Borough of Poole Social Care Learning and Development Team would like to make health and social care voluntary and independent providers aware of an important forthcoming change in the process for booking their training courses.
From 1 October 2015, Borough of Poole social care training courses need to be booked using the CPD online / Poole Workforce Development website. To clarify – CPD online is the commonly used name for the Poole Workforce Development website
CPD online is a very straightforward system to operate and should make course bookings easier for all concerned. CPD will mean customers no longer need to complete course application forms.
Any questions should be directed to the Borough of Poole’s Learning and Development Team on 01202 633449.
