About the PDAs eCPD programme

PDAs eCPD is delivered on behalf of the Learning and Skills Improvement Service (LSIS). It is one of two training programmes which integrate to form eCPD:
• PDAs eCPD training – for staff with responsibility for driving the use of technology in teaching and learning across their organisation.
• E-Guides eCPD training – what every teacher, tutor and trainer needs to know about using e-learning and technology.

These training programmes are designed to support effective use of technology in teaching and learning across the whole learning and skills sector. They help fulfill part of the Institute for Learning’s (IfL’s) 30 hour (or pro rata) continuing professional development (CPD) requirement.
The programmes form a cornerstone in the delivery of the 21st Century Skills outlined in “Harnessing Technology for Next Generation Learning”.
