Bii Explain how a PDP can help a social care worker identify improvements in their knowledge, understanding and practice.
I receive monthly supervision with my team leader. By using a PDP I have a written record any work related goals, targets or learning and development needs I may have. We will set the goals between ourselves and I will work towards theses on a monthly basis. As this develops I am then gradually learning my job and hitting regular targets. I then put this into practice building awareness and self-confidence. I even share any learnt skills or procedures with other work colleagues gaining even more self-confidence am doing my job
