Training and CPD modules
RaPAL are involved in developing training and CPD underpinned by research for which there is interest and demand in the field. These may take root from workshops delivered at our conferences. Recently, we are involved in developing CPD modules with NIACE. We also offer online delivery via platforms such as WebEx.
RaPAL are involved in other events in the field on an ad hoc basis. Our members have been involved in a wide range of activities including consultation with national and international organisations, feeding in to policy and a range of research and publications.
Proposals always welcome to email@example.com.
