Continuous Professional Development

About PACE

The PACE (Professional Agriculturists Continuing Education) project is a joint initiative on behalf of NIIAS and ASA to improve the professional status of graduates working in Agriculture, Rural Development and Countryside Management.

Its main aims are to:

  • identify the training needs of graduates post CAP Reform by an on-line survey.
  • develop and pilot a common CPD (Continuing Professional Development) framework for use by the members of both Professional Bodies.

This online resource is designed to allow you to analyse your training needs, plan your development and record and reflect upon your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities.

You may also communicate and share your expertise with other Professional Agriculturists through our new Keeping PACE tool.

All you have to do to begin is to complete our simple registration form.
