Approaches to Professional Development Planning

Peter Beven

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Professional Development Planning (PDP) is a supportive activity aimed to help individuals make decisions about their own professional life and future. At the heart of good practice for guides providing this service must be the notion that participants in the PDP process should be taking an active part in making these decisions. The question for guides offering PDP sessions to address is – how might we do this, given the rich variation of personalities, confidence, readiness to embrace change and decision making styles we are likely to encounter talking to participants in this area of work? This guide aims to provide an introduction to some tried and tested approaches that cast different perspectives on the process.
