Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a combination of approaches, ideas and techniques that will help teachers in Dental colleges to manage their own learning and growth. The focus of CPD is firmly on results – the benefits that professional development can bring in the real world.
