Martec Training Alternative approaches to CPD: the perspective of a Work Based Learning Provider

Summary

Martec used the Personal Development Profile (PDP), an online self-evaluation tool mapped against the National Occupational Standards (NOS) for Learning Support Practitioners (LSPs). The new Principal was keen to check all of her staffs’ training needs, especially in relation to safeguarding and providing learning support. It was hoped that the tool would provide a baseline against which to plan training and development. All members of staff undertook the PDP in January 2012, 25 in total. Staff worked through each section, drawing on the supplementary guidance and typing in comments as appropriate. The Principal sat in on some of the online assessments to gain a flavour of staff reactions to the questions as well carrying out the assessment herself.
