Developing Training Field Manual

The world is changing and so is the world of learning and development. This 'wiki' is intended to be a ‘field-book’ or ‘manual’ for trainers who are supporting changing organisations into the future. This document is not a how-to manual although such insights may be in evidence. Rather, it provides the next generation with ideas and approaches to their own practice drawn from the inquiry of others .

It is a participative space where ICTI members can chip in with their own perspective, suggest areas and topics to be added or correct errors and update with more recent ideas and practice.

CPD Self Evaluation

Personal development planning starts with questions - questions about where you are now and where you want to be in the future.

The exact questions are down to you, but we would suggest something like the following:
  • What do I want to achieve this year? in my work? with my life?
  • What would characterise the type of person that I want to be? What sort of career? What sort of personal life? What sort of intellectual abilities or interests?
  • Am I in a position to make those things happen? Am I giving sufficient focus and time to making those things happen?
  • Do I need to learn anything or develop new skills to make those things happen?
  • Am I actively taking steps towards my goals? Am I making use of the support available to help me achieve my goals?

Personal development planning involves taking the answers to questions like these and using the answers to decide where you want to go and how you will get there.

That journey is one on which you will reflect at specific points to make sure that you are going in the right direction and to decide whether you need to make any changes in what you are doing or how you are doing it.

The process of self-evaluation is essential to develop, The self-evaluation questionnaire which is offered is one way of exploring the areas of your professional practice that might benefit from attention.

This tool is based upon the Professional Standards for those working in learning and development in the vocational, post-compulsory education and training sector in the United Kingdom established by the Society for Education and Training (part of the Education and Training Foundation).

At the end of the three stages you will identify the areas in which you might seek to develop based on your evaluation of your competence measured against the professional standards.
