Why is personal development important?

Personal and professional development courses are designed to maximise your career potential by enhancing and expanding your skillset.

Courses cover the most common areas of development, from how to improve self-discipline to time management skills. These softer interpersonal skills demonstrate a clear commitment to self-improvement and career development to employers. As such, a personal development diploma helps to boost any candidate’s CV.

What is a personal development plan (PDP)?

A personal development plan is a structured framework that guides you towards reaching your personal goals.

In drawing up a personal development plan, you review the qualities you already have, identify the ones you need, and strategise ways to realistically add those desired qualities to your skillset.

The most effective way to reach your goals is to take a Pitman personal development skills training course. You not only learn the techniques for personal and professional development, but you also receive the full support of our online and in-centre training advisors along the way, too.
