How to evaluate a personal development plan

How to evaluate a personal development plan

The primary objective for a Personal Development Plan is to improve the capacity of individuals to understand what and how they are learning, and to review, plan and take responsibility for their own performance, such as:

  • Become more effective, independent and confident self-directed learners
  • Understand how they are learning and relate their learning to a wider context
  • Improve their general skills for study and career management
  • Articulate personal goals and evaluate progress towards their achievement
  • Develop a positive attitude to learning throughout life

It is worth taking time to review your activities against your plans on a regular basis, probably every quarter or so. Less often, and you may find that you are not placing a high enough priority on your development activities, and letting progress slip. More often, and you are likely to find that you have not made enough progress, or that you are tempted to put the review off, because the last one was so recent.

It is easy to forget about personal development, especially if you have just started a new job or course of study. But a regular review of your development plan keeps the process on track.
