The Professional Development Programme offers the individual practitioner or an organisation the opportunity to tailor make a programme of accredited study to meet the specific needs of themselves and the organisation.
For the individual the programme starts with a conversation about their journey so far and the directions they want to take. A plan to reach that destination is created exploring both the learning needs that emerge and results they want to achieve. This can also be linked to specific organisational objectives. The link between personal development and organisational results is such that frequently these programmes are funded by an employing organisation.
The programme can lead to academic and or professional awards and these are negotiated as part of the development of the learning plan.
For an organisation the process might include the development needs of the whole organisation or key teams within it. It starts with an analysis of needs and the creation of an organisational learning plan. A structure is put in place to support the delivery of the plan. The scheme can be linked to awards where required.
As this is a bespoke programme a learning conversation is the staring point for the relationship with PDF. We will advise on the best route forward, which includes introducing you to other organisations where they are best fitted to meet your needs.
A programme in Professional Development with the Leadership of Management is available.
