CPD program evaluation
In 2023, Monash University Business School researchers were engaged to conduct an evaluation of our CPD program. The research will be completed across two stages to investigate perceptions and attitudes regarding the CPD program:
- A focus group discussion with volunteer managers currently participating in the CPD program
- A survey of existing and past program participants
The findings of the focus group study will guide the scope and development of the second stage of the research. These are outlined in the full report, linked below.
The combined findings from both studies will provide a profound understanding of how to enhance the effectiveness of future CPD programs, and in turn, better equip volunteer managers to excel in their roles.
The program was motivating, providing a welcome structure, sense of collegiality and recognition for those who dedicate time for on-going learning. This program seems a good fit for a profession that needs to continuously evolve to stay relevant in an ever changing world. It is great to see the initiative going National.
