Personal development plan

Unit of Work – Resource ID No: WELL6

  • Self-care (behaviour, health etc.)
  • Areas for improvement and development (school completion, future employment)
  • Setting achievable personal goals

The Personal development planning enables students to take charge of their own learning. Learning becomes a practical as well as responsive process; to support development needs as well as longer-term ambitions.

A Personal Development Plan (PDP) enables learners to identify key areas of learning and development activity that will enable them to either acquire new or develop existing skills and behavioural attributes for the following purposes:

  • Enhance performance in school and life activities
  • Address anticipated changes required for to improve life choices
  • Address career aspirations towards a future employment

This plan will be used throughout the course.
