  Learning Log - Action Planning
The development actions that you take will be dependent on your individual needs and circumstances. The following list is intended to give examples of the sort of actions that are available to you. You can probably add others.
  • New job assignments (Whilst not available on demand it will be better if you prepare and plan for them. In deciding on whether or not to accept an assignment be aware of the learning potential it offers as well as the more obvious rewards.
  • Improving existing jobs (By making an effort to learn more from current activities or by adding more challenges to your current job.
  • Training Courses (Select what is appropriate, convenient and sensibly priced).
  • Self Study (Distance Learning Modules, Reading, individual research etc).
  • Temporary Secondments(To other departments or even other companies, or work shadowing).
  • Networking ( Maintaining an effective network of industry contacts is a very useful aid in maintaining your continuous employment. Networking, however, is more than knowing a wide circle of people. To be effective, networking must be done positively and maintained over a period of time. You will also have to keep a record of your network and contact information. The aim of networking is to ensure that you have a wide range of industry contacts who can help with information regarding career opportunities. Networking is not about asking people for jobs! It is about letting people know you are available. You can never tell who will provide you with an important lead that might be the springboard to the future(often it is not the person you would most expect). Remember that you are part of a network for others and that you, in your turn will provide leads for others.
