Unit aim

The aim of the unit is to give learners an understanding of how to manage self- development so that it contributes to their achievement of career and personal goals in respect of their work role and professional development.

Unit introduction

This unit gives learners the knowledge on how to manage self-development so that it contributes to the achievement of career and personal goals and learn how it links to the work role and professional development.  Learners will consider how to identify own development needs by understanding how to carry out a skills audit and how to evaluate the current and evolving requirements of the work role in order to inform self-development.

Learners will understand how to identify the gaps between current knowledge and skills and those required for achieving personal and professional objectives before using this as a basis for producing an effective self- development plan that relates to job role and professional development. Learners will be able to set objectives which are SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based) and recognise how different types of learning style contribute to own learning and development. Consideration will be given as to how to monitor and evaluate performance in achieving development targets and matching them against the requirements of the work role. Understanding how to use different sources of feedback to review performance will help inform modifications to their self-development plan.

Self-development allows individuals not just to achieve their career and personal goals, but also helps to support the achievement of business objectives since skilled, fulfilled employees make effective contributions to the activities of businesses.
