'CPD performs a pivotal role in ensuring that professionals maintain and develop their skills and knowledge throughout their careers and so maintain public confidence in the services that they provide. This book provides an invaluable analysis of the origins of, and rationale behind, the development of CPD together with an insightful look at the ways in which it may develop in the future.'

'Professor Andrew Friedman has performed an important task, examining the development and potential futures of continuing professional development (CPD). [...He] has assisted in taking away the mystery from the UK’s CPD, providing a clear path through the complexities and offering some explanations of how some apparent paradoxes of custom and history may be overcome. That hopefully growing group of academics and educators who seek to raise the status of CPD thank him for success in these three aims and trust that his work will influence other nations as well as the UK.'
