CPD Points

Since 2020 NEAS has implemented Continuing professional development (CPD) for a number of professional development opportunities.

Continuing professional development (CPD) is the process of recording formal and informal professional development from all sources through assigning points to relevant PD in order to maintain and build knowledge, skills, experience and currency in one’s professional life. 

Earning CPD through a number of the activities through NEAS validates quality learning for teachers, managers and ELT professionals.
