The Development Process
Personal and Professional knowledge, skills and attributes are developed through experience. The development process involves a 3-part cycle:
- Planning involves prioritising what area to develop and planning how to do this.
- Acting involves practice. You will practice your personal and professional knowledge, skills and attributes in everyday life as a student. However, the PPD Framework provide further resources to help you practice.
- Reviewing involves thinking about how good you were in practice and what you think you could improve. It is also important to record your progress, as this helps you to become more articulate about your knowledge, skills and attributes and to accurately assess your development needs.
