Two-thirds of architects too overworked to do training

  • Comment

More than two-thirds of architects forego training opportunities because of other work pressures, research has revealed

RIBA Insight polled almost 900 architects for the survey – and nearly all of them felt that continuing professional development was important.

But 69 per cent said a lack of available time at work often prevented them from taking part in such activities.

Marketing manager Junaid Kazi said: ‘The survey highlights the importance of making CPD material as accessible as possible for construction professionals working under the significant pressures of the current economic climate.

‘In addition to high quality Core Curriculum CPD provided by RIBA, a vast amount of material is available, free of charge, from the RIBA CPD Providers Network.’

More than a third of those surveyed left it to their employers to arrange their CPD rather than organising it themselves.

On average, professionals spend between one and two hours a week on CPD

More than half of those surveyed said they used online or digital channels as part of their CPD programme.
