STEP uses ‘role benchmarking’ as a way to focus on the outcomes of learning
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a requirement of maintaining STEP membership for all membership types that are currently working (see STEP’s Code of Professional Conduct).
STEP operates an outcomes based approach to CPD with a focus on the maintenance and development of professional competence through undertaking CPD that is relevant to the individual. Using role benchmarking, members are required to match their CPD against the key responsibilities in their work role. In this way they can meet their stakeholders’ reasonable expectations of them in their work role and their obligations as a professional.
