Activity 3 –Professional Development Project and Plan

  1. This will be a project on meeting your own work priorities and effective planning for your professional development:


Select and describe a short-term goal (it must be at your work and part of your work responsibilities). Then set up a plan showing – step-by-step – how you will achieve that goal.

Your plan must include:

  • Description of your professional development goal
  • Stresses and influences in your life that may affect the plan
  • Contingency measures for deviations on your plan
  • Timelines (approximately 6 months to a year is acceptable)
  • Steps taken to achieve your professional (work) goal.

Notes: Your plan must have enough detail to demonstrate understanding of complexities and prioritisation (for example, “get money from bank” would be too simple).

  1. Report on professional competence:

Write a report outlining your current skill levels and possible improvements. Include:

  • A summary of current job role and skills
  • A summary of skill gaps
  • A description of your organisation’s standards or performance criteria (i.e. KPIs)
  • A list of professional strengths and weaknesses
  • A summary of your future career path (must include at least 4 definite steps showing a clear progression to your career goal).

Any supporting documentation (awards, citations, certificates of merit, letters of approval, etc.)
