Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Framework for Technicians

The CPD Framework, developed by TTAG (Technical Training Advisory Group), is intended to give structure to technicians’ continuing professional development.

The Framework has been developed in the light of the first HEaTED survey to which the majority of technicians at Leicester contributed and it is directly linked to the National Framework Agreement.

The CPD Framework is divided into Core Modules and Specific Job Skills. There are four modules of core training that technicians should attend. However, it may be that some technicians have already received training in these areas elsewhere.

To avoid duplication of training each technician should carry out an initial skills assessment with their line manager and agree their training and development plan. This training and development plan is most likely to be agreed during annual appraisal.
