-   Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

To meet our growing needs, we will continually seek to develop new staff. Anyone interested in any or all development activities of Group Relations China is encouraged to contact us for a discussion of our mutual interests.

If we are to develop a high-quality Group Relations Learning Programme, it will be appreciated that continuous staff development is important.

In Conference Development:

Group Relations events are learning events for all staff as well as members. All consultants work with more senior consultants in one-on-one CPD meetings, where they can further their understanding of the Group Relations learning and consultant role.

Annual CPD workshop: 

The purpose of this event is to ensure that Group Relations China is continuing to achieve its aim of providing high quality Group Relations learning for Chinese people. This event is open to all Group Relations China consultants. The annual CPD workshops are facilitated by Lionel Stapley and Yujia Zhang, who identify and provide opportunities for understanding various vital aspects of taking up the consultant role.
