You should review your chosen area for development while you practice and after the completion of a development plan. This page provides guidance on this process. Guidance on providing good evidence is also available.
While practicing/following a development plan:
Think about what you do well in practice and which areas require more improvement. For example, if you are working on presenting, you may be very good at speaking at the right volume, but not so good at making eye contact with the audience. Writing about your experiences in MyPortfolio, will help you think about this. Once you have done so, you should reconsider your development plan: does it concentrate on those areas that need most development or should you modify it?
