Tools for planning and tracking your PD
A professional development plan documents the goals, required skill and competency development, and objectives a staff member will need to accomplish for continuous improvement.
It's important to communicate your expectations for staff professional development. Use the Core Competencies for Youth Workers and Supervisors of Youth Workers to assess staff's areas for growth and for making a plan. Each of the Competencies come with a self assessment tool.
Remember to explain to staff how they should track their progress and document completion; they should know if they are paid or not for their time and how much total time is being allocated for their professional development. Work to align professional development with individual and organizational goals.
