Custom and Self Build Week 2021 – CPD for professionals

Join the National Custom and Self Build Association on the 24-28 May for a week of inspiring keynote presentations and continued professional development.

The week has been designed to build understanding of Custom and Self Build and the opportunities it presents for a range of professions. With Government supporting custom and self builds as a route to greater housing diversity, it has never been more important for professionals to understand current policy, practice and the opportunity for growth.

Welcome to NaCSBA's Custom and Self Build Week 2021 - for professionals!

We’re offering FREE CPD sessions for a range of professions, with introductory sessions providing an overview of the sector, tailored to different professions, with drill down sessions providing practical and useful insight into delivery. We’ll be presenting alongside some of the leading names in custom and self build including keynote speakers.

Each session is free, and attendees will be sent a CPD certificate for their personal development portfolios, to evidence attendance of individual sessions. The CPD is not accredited by each individual professional body, but instead provides a general CPD need for people looking to build their skills and knowledge in custom and self build.

NaCSBA’s objective is to grow custom and self build opportunities in the UK, and the week of continued professional development provides an outlet for sharing skills and best practice for a range of professions. Free CPD meets this challenge, ensuring a range of professions are ready to engage and support delivery.

Details will be released shortly, but we expect that registration will be for the entire week, at which point you will be sent the joining instructions for Zoom. This will give you access to every session. You will be sent a blank CPD certificate that you can fill in according to the sessions you joined as a record of your individual learning.

Sign up will be open closer to the event, but for now please add a note in your diary. Please note, CPD sessions are free but will require you to register with NaCSBA.
