BCS survey reveals latest CPD challenges for IT professionals

Sixty-one per cent of those surveyed report there is less time in the working day for CPD activities than in previous years, with more than half working for organisations with no policy to set aside time for CPD in the working day.

David Evans, director for membership at the Institute, explained, ‘Our research shows that the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) landscape has changed and continues to evolve. With this evolution, both employers and employees need to adapt to get the optimum benefits from their investment, and embrace an enlightened approach to CPD. This is not just a challenge to those in the IT industry, but to every workplace where IT plays a part.’

The survey sets out the specific challenges being faced by IT professionals (as perceived by their employers and line managers) in the planning and execution of their professional development objectives. These include the fact that two third of respondents state there is less funding for traditional CPD activities now than in previous years for their IT workforce and a third perceive their organisation does not support CPD.
