The CPD management module in Stedfast has been designed to allow education and training providers to manage and record staff CPD. This is a key requirement in ensuring quality assurance of learning delivery.
1 / Recording CPD
Each CPD record has information about the activity, what professional standards it helps develop, the costs, the venue and the number of CPD hours. The CPD record is also aligned with organisational development areas.
2 / CPD Approvals
CPD requests are approved by either a line manager, the HR coordinator or the Stedfast system administrator. Reports track the number of CPD hours that each member of staff has completed annually.
3 / Performance Alignment
As well as managing CPD activities, Stedfast also has a staff performance module that allows organisations to set out performance objectives and then conduct staff appraisals against them.
3 / CPD Certification
CPD certification can be uploaded to the individual user's records. This makes it easy to show these to awarding bodies and OFSTED. Staff can also provide feedback on the value of each activity.

How does Stedfast support quality assurance?Stedfast supports the management of quality assurance by providing a centralised platform that is easy to access and collaborative. One of the key weaknesses that institutions have with managing their quality assurance is that it tends to be done in isolation with one or two individuals completing it. Sometimes this is widened through the use of emails and attached documents. Stedfast provides a portal for all staff to access quality assurance, and the system is designed for all staff to be involved in the quality process.
