overview
With the expected full liberalisation of the Dutch Energy market on 1 January 2004, the impact this will have on both established and new energy producers is already under discussion. Attention is now turning to the privatisation of the energy industry and how this can be achieved. The sustainable energy market is also gaining momentum in The Netherlands as they aim to reduce demand, save energy and maximise the use of renewable energy.

This conference will look at real issues in the Dutch energy market. It will not simply be an update on what is happening in the market or a progress report on the current state of liberalisation. It will offer those either already involved or thinking of becoming involved in the Dutch energy market, a real opportunity to assess the viability of expanding and ensuring their place in the market. It will also provide an ideal opportunity to discuss the direction which the Dutch energy industry is taking, who is involved in shaping the future of the market and ways of driving the Dutch energy market forward in terms of policy framework, investment, security of supply and competition.

SMi’s Dutch Energy V conference aims to look at a number of issues including minimising entry barriers, renewable energy, economic and financial issues, introducing more competition into the market and privatising the Dutch energy market.

Benefits of Attending:
· Learn where you fit into the future Dutch energy market
· Identify how to meet the policy requirements for sustainable development
· Discover the advantages of a central trading and sourcing operation
· Maximise security of supply along gas routes
· Consider how to overcome market difficulties

    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.
