Why Continuing Professional Development?
Yoga and meditation are now broadly accepted by society, and as with all professional disciplines, continuing professional development training is necessary to guarantee our excellent standard as teachers.
Keeping up to date with Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and maintaining records of it enables lets you keep your Dru Professional Network (DPN) membership current.
The CPD programme offered is designed to help you stay up to date with Dru and refresh your teaching skills.
Under the DPN Code of Professional Conduct, you agree to do regular CPD. This means that Dru can confidently stand behind your qualification.
How much CPD do I need?
For the first year after your final Dru Yoga Teacher Training day there is no CPD requirement.
Following this first year, you need a minimum of 12 CPD points over a year, with a minimum of 6 points professional development.
How do I acquire my CPD points?
You acquire CPD points from attendance at events or doing online courses. 1 hour of attendance = 1 CPD point unless otherwise stated.
Professional development may come from attending Dru events that upgrade your skills or include reference to teaching methodology such as posture modification or enhancing the effect on the koshas etc.
This includes ( but is not limited to):
Please note that 1 hour of professional development mentoring = 3 CPD points *Please remember that mentoring can be arranged via Skype, phone or in person*
Personal development comes from general contact hours with Dru senior tutors, such as:
Please note that 1 hour personal development individual mentoring = 3 CPD points
A Frequently asked Question is this:
May I include other related training in my CPD record?
As long as that training and your reflection on that training answers this question, "How do I keep myself refreshed as a Dru Yoga Teacher?" you may include other related training on your CPD record.
If the training you have done has helped you develop rather than be refreshed as as Dru Yoga Teacher, then you can consider it as Professional Development.
Who can help me with questions about CPD?
If you have any questions about CPD, or are having difficulty fulfilling these requirements please contact Jill in the DPN Office at email@example.com or phone 01248 602900 ext 213, leaving a brief message and a good time to return your call if you get the answerphone.
