IOH CPD Scheme

IOH CPD Scheme


The Institute of Hospitality is the professional body for individual managers and aspiring managers working and studying in the hospitality, leisure and tourism (HLT) industry. The Institute has been in existence since the 1930s when it began in the UK.

The Institute's reputation as a membership organisation promoting quality standards and education has grown in its 70 year history resulting in a membership spanning more than 100 countries around the globe. From HLT students to retired Fellows, the Institute continues to support members' professional development throughout their careers, wherever they are in the world.


Through its unrivalled e-based library resources, the Institute is able to support its members in their CPD and personal study goals. The Institute's resources and "My CPD" which includes the CPD Tool will help you keep track of your CPD activities:

  • Professional books and journals you read.
  • Courses you have completed.
  • Informal CPD work you have been doing, like coaching a colleague, leading a workshop or taking part in a working group.
  • What your key learning points have been and how you plan to apply them.
  • To access, create and add to your own My CPD Tool, simply login on the Institute of Hospitality web site. Whether you are preparing for an annual appraisal, applying for a new job or updating your CV, the "My CPD Tool" provides a record of CPD-qualifying activities. The CPD activities quickly add up and, by the end of the year, you can look back and see how much you have achieved.

Within the Institute of Hospitality website there are many opportunities to access different types of CPD-qualifying activities. For example, members have exclusive access to the Institute's Information Services including collections of ejournals and ebooks covering hospitality, leisure & tourism (HLT), general business, career development and management:

  • Online Library Catalogue
