"Continuing Professional Development is a process by which individuals take control of their own learning & development, by engaging in an ongoing process of reflection and action. This process is empowering and exciting and can stimulate people to achieve their aspirations and move towards their dreams." ('Continuing Professional Development', by David Megginson and Vivien Whitaker, 2004).
