New professional development tool for project practitioners
AXELOS, the organisation behind project qualifications such as PRINCE2 and ITIL, has launched a Continuing Professional Development (CPD) scheme as part of its Professional Development Programme.
The initiative consists of online membership aligned to the global best practice frameworks of ITIL, PRINCE2 and PRINCE2 Agile, which provides members with a range of specialised tools and support.
Project practitioners earn a digital badge that can be shared via online platforms when they attain the required CPD points. Members will also be able to assess their ability against industry benchmarks and gain access to exclusive content and activities designed to develop their skills and knowledge.
“There are millions of practitioners with either ITIL or PRINCE2 qualifications, and we want to champion these professionals by giving them a means to develop their knowledge and skills,” said Peter Hepworth, CEO of AXELOS, who noted it was designed to go beyond passing an exam and gaining a qualification.
“Ongoing investment in professional development also benefits organisations as well as individuals. Employers can ensure that their employees are continually developing their skills and the new digital badges will also help employers source the right talent by using them to differentiate against individuals who haven’t kept their skills up to date.”
Practitioners who currently hold an ITIL or PRINCE2 qualification are welcome to join. More information: www.axelos.com/professional-development
