Although it’s not compulsory to complete a Personal Development Plan, we recommend that you do so.


Creating a Personal Development Plan encourages you to define your practice, identify CPD and Clinical (Practice) Audit activities appropriate for you, and set out goals for your personal development.  It can also be used to reflect on and monitor your progress.


If you complete the Personal Development Plan form we have provided for you in your ePortfolio for Professional Competence by 30 September, you may claim 5 credits in the Internal CPD category.
