Models of Personal Development Planning: practice and processes

This article presents an analysis of case study data from a project evaluating Personal Development Planning (PDP) at a large post-1992 university in England. The study was undertaken as part of a strategy for encouraging schools to build upon existing experience, while at the same time ensuring consistency with new national guidelines for the implementation of PDP across the sector. The aim of the research was to understand the models already available for supporting and developing PDP, and the views of different stakeholders about the place of PDP in the curriculum.
