Collective Peer Development is a new LSA programme for our Partner Network to learn and share ideas to enrich their professional potential. Talks from industry leaders are currently ongoing on a weekly basis and you can find the links to recordings of them below.

Not just a lecture series
Collective Peer Development is a forum for gaining and exchanging knowledge. Unlike other CPDs, we’re keen to let discussion have equal billing to presentations. Talks will last a maximum of half an hour, with 30 minutes allocated for questions and discussion. All talks, however, can count as part of your RIBA CPD hours. Sign up to hear about our CPD schedule here.
