Coventry Institutional PDP implementation principles Personal development planning should be a formative, student-centred process. The process should be integrated into the whole of the student experience at Coventry University and include academic, personal, career and professional skills inputs. The implementation should take into account, build upon and be complementary to existing expertise and practices. The introduction of PDP should not place unnecessarily increased burdens of administration and bureaucracy on staff and students.
