overview

Irregular migration by sea is a massive phenomenon that is not destined to stop any soon. According to UNHCR, a growing number of refugees, asylum-seekers and migrants have died in the Mediterranean Sea because of drowning, hypothermia or dehydration while attempting to escape hunger, civil wars, persecution and atrocious conditions in their home countries.

Lots of them were rescued at sea through search and rescue naval operations. However, actually, many thousands of migrants who left their country did not survive the voyage. Over 3,500 women, men and children have died or have gone missing in their attempt to reach Europe.
Against this complex and tragic background, the aim of the workshop is to deal with all the main sensitive and interrelated aspects. They are:

a) the international legal and policy framework surrounding the current massive phenomenon of migration in the Mediterranean;
b) ensuring border control in the EU, and, at the same time,
c) the saving of migrants’ lives at sea and their rights; d) fighting, through International Cooperation, the Transnational Criminal Organisations engaged in the Smuggling of Migrants.

 

• Acquire new knowledge and skills concerning Migration in the Mediterranean;
• Catch the chance to interact with legal experts on International Migration, Law of the Sea and Human Rights Law.
• Improve capacity and tools to deal with Migrations related issues, border control and maritime surveillance;
• Enhance contacts in the field of International Migration, Law of the Sea and Human Rights Law.

WHAT IS CPD?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development’. It is essentially a philosophy, which maintains that in order to be effective, learning should be organised and structured. The most common definition is:

‘A commitment to structured skills and knowledge enhancement for Personal or Professional competence’

CPD is a common requirement of individual membership with professional bodies and Institutes. Increasingly, employers also expect their staff to undertake regular CPD activities.

Undertaken over a period of time, CPD ensures that educational qualifications do not become obsolete, and allows for best practice and professional standards to be upheld.

CPD can be undertaken through a variety of learning activities including instructor led training courses, seminars and conferences, e:learning modules or structured reading.

CPD AND PROFESSIONAL INSTITUTES

There are approximately 470 institutes in the UK across all industry sectors, with a collective membership of circa 4 million professionals, and they all expect their members to undertake CPD.

For some institutes undertaking CPD is mandatory e.g. accountancy and law, and linked to a licence to practice, for others it’s obligatory. By ensuring that their members undertake CPD, the professional bodies seek to ensure that professional standards, legislative awareness and ethical practices are maintained.

CPD Schemes often run over the period of a year and the institutes generally provide online tools for their members to record and reflect on their CPD activities.

TYPICAL CPD SCHEMES AND RECORDING OF CPD (CPD points and hours)

Professional bodies and Institutes CPD schemes are either structured as ‘Input’ or ‘Output’ based.

‘Input’ based schemes list a precise number of CPD hours that individuals must achieve within a given time period. These schemes can also use different ‘currencies’ such as points, merits, units or credits, where an individual must accumulate the number required. These currencies are usually based on time i.e. 1 CPD point = 1 hour of learning.

‘Output’ based schemes are learner centred. They require individuals to set learning goals that align to professional competencies, or personal development objectives. These schemes also list different ways to achieve the learning goals e.g. training courses, seminars or e:learning, which enables an individual to complete their CPD through their preferred mode of learning.

The majority of Input and Output based schemes actively encourage individuals to seek appropriate CPD activities independently.

As a formal provider of CPD certified activities, SMI Group can provide an indication of the learning benefit gained and the typical completion. However, it is ultimately the responsibility of the delegate to evaluate their learning, and record it correctly in line with their professional body’s or employers requirements.

GLOBAL CPD

Increasingly, international and emerging markets are ‘professionalising’ their workforces and looking to the UK to benchmark educational standards. The undertaking of CPD is now increasingly expected of any individual employed within today’s global marketplace.
