Staying current and relevant to the industry through Professional Development training is crucial to organisational success in today’s rapidly changing world.

It plays a vital role in not just helping employees become more efficient, but it also helps develop a culture of enhanced productivity and higher motivation levels within the team.


It holds even more relevance in the training and education industry, where continuous learning and knowledge are crucial to the changing trends, directions and demands of the industry.

Apart from boosting morale and confidence, organising and participating in continuing education is a great way to introduce and implement best practices. At MCIE, continuing education through Professional Development session for its trainers, and educators as well as for peers from the industry is a way of life.

Here are 3 ways in which professional development sessions are beneficial:

1. It’s a great way to network, build new relations, and retain talent

A professional development session is not just about learning, but is also a great way to help expand your team’s network. In a professional world, it helps to not only stay relevant and up to date, but also stay in touch with your peers and colleagues. Apart from expanding the professional network of the team, it also helps promote you as a reputable employer since your educators and other team members represent you as your brand ambassadors at these forums. With a motivated and committed team representing you, it not only helps retain talent, but you will also attract the right talent at your organisation.

2. It proves to be a platform to learn new ideas and enhance productivity

With exposure to new ideas and new ways of thinking, you will enable your educators to gain new skills that they will apply at their own workplace. You can not only expect to see enhanced productivity but with new skills and ideas, your workforce will be more confident, happier and committed to their job to deliver enhanced learning experience to their students. Linkedin Learning’s 2019 Workplace Learning Report also states ‘consistent and valuable learning to employees’ amongst the top 7 focus areas for talent development.

3. It helps stay updated with current and approved learning frameworks and guidelines
