About the Partnership

Ashburnham is really pleased to be able to offer fully CPD accredited training with a biblically rooted basis and faith actionable development opportunities. Initially we are offering two separate courses each run over a 24-hour period, allowing space for 8 hours of accredited training interwoven with personal reflection, developmental goal setting, ministry and biblical teaching. All this being offered at a price that is lower than most CPD training hours, in partnership with a facilitator, MTC (see below) that is an industry leader in Team and Leadership development, Emotional Intelligence and Stress Management.

Going forward we hope to develop a full range of CPD accredited retreat days, but we need your help to help us find our rhythm. So please take the time to find out about these pilot courses and if they are not applicable to you, please think about others you could pass the information onto.


Who is it for:

Our two pilot courses should be of interest to:

Employees of companies that pay for professional development courses chosen by their employees. This is relevant to most employees of public bodies and many of employees of medium to large enterprises. The links below will take you to the CPD relevant course descriptions relevant to our pilot courses. This information can be forwarded to the relevant line management or HR personnel.
Christian owned companies, organisations and churches that provide professional development for their employees. Participants need only be sympathetic to the Christian faith, the CPD elements are secularly certified and can be presented to any future employer.
Individuals who have responsibility for their own professional development.

If you fall into one of these categories please think about booking a place on one of our July courses, and if you can’t do that, please let us know about your most pressing professional development needs interest, it could help us develop future offerings.

What is Continuous Professional Development:

Continuious Professional Development(CPD) refers to the process of tracking and documenting the skills, knowledge and experience that you gain both formally and informally as you work. The CPD Standards Office accredits facilitators to issue certificates for successful participation in assessed courses covering pre-agreed content. These certificates are internationally recognised and become a part of an individual’s Professional Development record.
