CPD with OCN Credit4Learning

Lots of enquiries from members seeking advice on CPD, so just to clarify: All courses accredited by OCN Credit4Learning can be used to evidence CPD (Continuing Professional Development).

International Challenges and Opportunities

Brexit. It’s currently the hottest topic in politics, and we at OCN Credit4Learning, whilst maintaining our usual political impartiality before, during and after the referendum have been keenly following the political debate.

First Forum hailed a ‘great and rewarding experience’

On Friday 4th November 2016 we hosted our first sector specific forum inviting keynote speakers from non-member organisations and OCN Credit4learning members to share their stories, knowledge, and experiences. The organisations present had an amazing wealth of expertise, which ensured a really vibrant and buzzy atmosphere developed, with lots of ideas shared, and opportunities to network appearing. Often, it’s easy for people to become trapped in ‘their own box,’ thus, having an opportunity to meet others in the field, and share experiences and practices is very precious, as people rarely get a glimpse into the workings of other organisations, and the forum provided an environment that was open and friendly.
