Recording achievements, identifying needs
In this section you will find more information about how to record your achievements and how to identify what learning would be useful to you to further your career. You can start to think seriously about your successes and your development needs using several techniques:
- Personal Development Planning (PDP)
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD)
- Reflective Practice
- Portfolio Development
Further information and useful links can be found on the Learning Needs pages of the NHS Education for Scotland's Shared Learning website or the Learning Needs pages of NHS Education for Scotland's Virtual Learning Centre.
Thinking about your achievements is also important for maintaining an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV) in case you should want to apply for another job. You can find out more about developing a CV in our section on Looking for Jobs.
