This paper will identify the aims of Personal Development Planning (PDP) in a broad national context. It will consider the approach taken by The University of Salford (UoS) in structuring and implementing PDP requirements, and discuss how such policies may be delivered as an integral part of a practice based programme curriculum.
There are a number of models for the implementation of PDP currently being delivered within UK Higher Education Institutions, however the broad range of academic study now available creates a dilemma when trying to assess which model proves the ‘best fit’. The interpretation of a broad strategic vision given by University policy makers may not always readily covert into activities and processes that align with a programme’s curriculum. In this paper, methods for the implementation of PDP at programme level will focus on the UoS Product Design programme as a case study. Taking University policy as a starting point, the programme developed a PDP structure that attempts to align itself coherently with a heavily practice based curriculum.
