How tahdah Enables Continuing Professional Development

This post discusses how tahdah is working with CIMSPA to deliver Continual Professional Development to the UK sport and physical activity professionals.

The pursuit of self-improvement is an ambition that should be nurtured and encouraged at every stage of life. This is especially true in the workplace. Professional development is a mutually beneficial action that rewards both the employer and the employee. By improving their knowledge and competency employees can work smarter, faster and more productively.

The modern workforce's appetite for professional development is, according to the latest studies, increasing at a significant rate.

"Survey results show that right now, on average, employers dedicate 2.7 hours per week to professional development; millennials would like to see this increase to 4.5 hours per week.”

So, what role can technology play in improving workers' access to training opportunities, and what can be done to bridge the gap between current attitudes towards workplace development and those being propagated by the next generation of workers?

At Tahdah we believe the answer to a multifaceted question is a multifaceted solution. Our software delivers a broad range of features and functionality that ensures that organisations are properly equipped to start delivering the workforce development opportunities that their employees demand.

For the employer

Tahdah is an online platform that connects individuals, instructors and awarding bodies in one easy-to-use environment, thereby, providing organisations with the ability to manage all of their employees’ training and professional development requirements.

To achieve this we have developed a range of management tools including:

  • Book your employees on Continuing Professional Development (CPD) events and training courses online.
  • Create, manage and promote your own training courses and CPD events.
  • Set CPD quotas for your employees, with custom periodical reminders to keep their training up-to-date.
  • Create and share your own custom digital badges to denote specific achievements within your organisation.
  • Create custom E-learning modules that can be completed online.

As a cloud-based platform, we are constantly developing new features and improving existing ones to allow us to deliver the best professional development and training management system available.

For the employee

For individuals seeking to develop their skills and progress in their career, tahdah is the ideal system. Our philosophy for individual users is to make it as easy as possible to organise their training commitments around their busy lifestyles. By utilising the range of features we have developed tahdah becomes the perfect vehicle for professional self-development. Some of these features include:

  • Interactive digital calendar with customisable reminders to organise your training.
  • Book your place on training courses or workshops online.
  • Undertake verified E-learning modules on the system.
  • Download any required course materials or resources.
  • Earn verified digital credentials and display them as part of your digital profile.
  • All qualifications earned through tahdah are 100% verified.
  • Create your own digital CV or video CV and share it with potential employers.
  • Keep an up-to-date record of your CPD points and set reminders for upcoming CPD requirements.


To further demonstrate our commitment to creating the ultimate professional development system we have recently announced our strategic partnership with The Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity or CIMSPA.

Launched in 2011, CIMSPA is the professional development body for the UK’s sport and physical activity sector.

The Institute holds two long-term strategic priorities:

  • To provide opportunities for young leaders to develop and succeed.
  • To provide leadership on the development and management of career pathways.


CIMSPA Chartered Membership Structure

After a period of consultation, CIMSPA selected Tahdah as their official delivery method to help them achieve their strategic objectives.

We are working closely with CIMSPA as they design and implement new, internationally-recognised training opportunities for sports and leisure professionals wishing to advance their careers.

CIMSPA-accredited training courses and workshops that give professionals the opportunity to gain prestigious industry qualifications will be managed through the Tahdah system. Tahdah will become the primary destination for sports & leisure professionals who want to advance in their careers or keep up-to-date with their CPD requirements.

As more and more of these professionals seek out CIMSPA accreditation, the standards of the entire industry will improve and become more consistent.

Our new strategic partnership with CIMSPA is another milestone on our journey to become the home of verified training and professional development.
