What is Professional Development?

Professional development refers to any kind of professional development activities, including training programs, learning opportunities, leadership development or learning experiences that can help you with your career. That includes more advanced qualifications such as an Advanced Diploma, or short courses that teach you about a specific skill like decision-making under pressure or thinking skills for school teachers working with children with special needs.

Some professions, such as psychology, require continuing professional development – in other words, their employees must undertake learning throughout their career in order to meet their professional development needs as set out by their governing bodies. For others, professional development is a way to show employers that you’re ready for a further step in your career, or a way to move to your own private professional practice.

Professional development is available in a wide range of industries and topics, including:

  • Human resources
  • Early childhood education, primary or secondary education
  • IT and information systems
  • Specific business programs such as MYOB, Prince2 or Python

Ways to Complete Professional Development Requirements and Courses

If you have professional development requirements for your workplace or job or are looking to improve, then there are several options for learning environments and methods. There are professional development courses in Melbourne, Victoria, and all over the country that may be suitable.

 

Many schools offer both online learning and face-to-face delivery options for courses so that you can complete training and coursework in a way that suits you best. If you find webinars are the best way for you to complete a learning program, then online learning is probably the best option for you. Meanwhile, if you prefer to be able to ask questions in person, then a face-to-face learning option may be preferable.
Longer courses may also offer part-time study for those who are working full time and therefore can’t commit to the course load of a full-time course.
