PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT PLANS
The following section will give you guidance on the Personal Development Plan, what
it is and how you can utilise it in support of your educational aspirations.
3 key questions to ask yourself……
1. What is a Personal Development Plan(PDP)
2. Why Should I have one
3. How can I write one to reflect my own aspirations
The answers are straightforward……
1. What is a Personal Development Plan(PDP)
A PDP is just another name for a plan of action, only this one refers specifically to
your aspirations regarding personal development. We make plans every day, but do
not always write them down; a PDP allows you to set your own personal targets and
find the best way to achieve them.
2. Why Should I have one
An action plan will help you to visualise what you are doing and keep track of
your achievements. To be totally effective, it must be a fluid document that is
reviewed at regular intervals to ensure that it is always accurate, relevant and
realistic. Furthermore, certain courses may be eligible for financial assistance, such
as the SLC and ELC. In order to qualify for these allowances, you will have to prove
your commitment to your studies. You must have a PDP in order to claim the ELC, in
accordance with the ELC DCI. Remember, the PDP is your personal document, but
with your permission it is recommended that a copy be held in your Personal
Educational Folder, the F7269. Access to this will be restricted to the Learning
Centre Staff only.
3. How can I write one to reflect my own aspirations
You now have 2 options. Some of you may feel confident enough to go straight
ahead and fill in a PDP, if this applies to you, go to page 2-A-1, consider the example
and then fill in the template on page 2-A-3. Please note that the design used for the
template is only a suggested format. Any layout will be acceptable, provided it
satisfies the 3 questions discussed on the next few pages. Many of you may need a
little more time to consider the various factors that will affect your future decisions. If
this is the case, take some time to go through the guidance on the following pages.
The questions aim to promote thought and consideration of the direction that you
want to go in and the methods that you want to use. They also take account of your
own personal circumstances before you decide on a course of action.
