CIPP survey - Saving through payroll research

20 March 2015

The CIPP has worked closely with a number of credit unions, payroll software and service providers, employers and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) to investigate some of the barriers and perceptions to saving through payroll.

Please help us obtain more information by completing this short survey . The survey closes midnight 8 May 2015. Thank you

CPD survey for CIPP members

23 March 2015

The CIPP is working on its future CPD strategy for the membership; please help inform the strategy by completing the survey.

Currently the CIPP requests you record any learning you have undertaken that relates to CPD with evidence of the learning. However, many organisations set an annual hour’s based CPD requirement, for example for the CIM it is 35 hours of learning per year. Using an hour’s based CPD system, would mean members would need to achieve a set number of hours and still provide evidence of that learning, and more importantly record how the learning has added value to the individuals CPD.

Please can you spare between 5 and 10 minutes to complete the survey and help inform the strategy. The survey closes at midnight 30 April 2015. Thank you.
