Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is an important element of the career progression for all of us. Here, experienced school library practitioner, independent trainer and latterly President of CILIP, Barbara Band, reflects on the nature and range of CPD and why it is necessary. She examines the personal and organisational benefits, important aspects and possible challenges and barriers, and suggests some ways to undertake CPD in differing circumstances. This is a ‘must read’ publication for everyone working in school libraries who wishes to maintain their learning and keep their library knowledge credible and up to date.
