Professional Development Plan

Creating a PDP at the beginning of each Professional Competence Scheme year encourages you to plan your activities during the year and to set out goals for your personal development. It can also be used to reflect on and monitor your progress during the year. The aim of creating a Professional Development Plan (PDP) is to document a process of self-analysis and set new and clearly definable educational goals for yourself in advance of the Professional Competence Scheme each year.


It is not currently compulsory to complete a Professional Development Plan, however it is recommended that you do so.    


Complete your Professional Development Plan and claim two CPD credits in the Internal Category


Having completed your PDP you may choose to review it with a professional colleague and you may each claim one CPD Credit in the Internal Category


At the end of the year (April 30th), you should review your PDP and assess whether you have met your goals.  You may claim one CPD credit in the Internal Category for reviewing your PDP at the end of the year.
