CPD 2014 Logo


As a professional, your Continual Professional Development choices are in your hands and must be relevant to you, your circumstances, the level of detail and expertise you require. Your CPD not only relates to your position in the practice, future career prospects, business development, but also the time and money you can afford.

Attending CPD courses has enormous, potentially lucrative benefits, helping you:

  • maintain and develop your professional competence
  • ensure your skills are up to date
  • enhance and improve your performance
  • be competitive and employable
  • manage and plan your professional future
  • develop transferrable skills
  • enhance your client offer
  • increase your potential and widen prospects.

The RIBA has developed a national programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD). There are ten different seminars covering subjects in all ten RIBA core curriculum areas. They are repeated in 14 different venues across England. The seminars are cheaper to purchase with a CPD Club Ticket, which entitles you to attend all ten seminars throughout the year and can bring the cost down to as little as £37 per event.

In the North East events will take place at Gateshead Civic Centre. Events will run on a Thursday afternoon from 2 - 4.30pm; registration from 1.30pm.

If you are not currently registered for online booking please register.
