Boost your Organisation’s Profile and Extend its Reach!
Your organisation has its own website, individuals in your area know about your organisation, and you’re still not achieving the level of engagement you’re looking for with your CPD offer. How can you improve this?
Subscribers to the CPD Portal-SW service can promote their events to an audience of over 10 000 users across SW England and beyond. The Portal is ‘Booking Platform Agnostic’ – it doesn’t matter where your events are being processed, you can still add them to the Portal’s CPD catalogue.
Users click the ‘Register’ button next to an event listing and they’re routed through to the site where the event’s bookings are being managed. Many organisations use services such as EventBrite, Google Forms or Third Party booking systems; the Portal can accommodate all events regardless of how bookings are managed by an organisation.
The Power of Search
Search Simplified - Users can find CPD from one simple search box, searching across an extensive catalogue of CPD from over 80 CPD Providers across the whole of SW England and beyond. If the event is added to the Regional Portal you’ll find it there.
Enter a phrase and the Portal will display the CPD available throughout the region. Users can also carry out an advanced search by category or even postcode.
Adding a CPD Event is as Simple as ABC…
Simply add your event by completing the ‘Add an Event’ form and begin promoting your events to a wider audience.
The following video outlines how to add an event:
What do I need to begin Promoting My Events on the Regional Portal?
Your organisation will need a CPD Provider account for the Regional Portal https://www.cpdportal-sw.org . As we are transitioning between Sub Regional sites and the Regional Platform, you’ll currently need two accounts. Your Sub Regional account will NOT work on the Regional Portal. You can request a Regional Portal account here.
NOTE: We will only provide an account to the registered email address attached to your organisation’s Sub Regional Portal CPD Provider Account.
We’ve created a new ‘Support FAQs’ area on the Portal. From here you can view the most common support questions raised by CPD Providers. We will be retiring the current ‘Help’ site over the coming weeks, and centralizing support at the Regional Portal level.
You can also contact support by filling in the ‘Contact Portal Support’ form on the Support FAQs page.
If you’re having problems using your Portal account, please go to the ‘Contact’ menu on the Regional Portal, fill in the ‘Contact Portal Support’ form and we’ll be happy to assist you.
