11 Preparation  Give your supervisor an idea of what you plan to discuss at the meeting  This avoids wasting time at your meeting and provides the best chance of focussing your discussion effectively  An efficient meeting requires mutual clarity on expectations and some thought prior to the event on both sides

12 Initial Meeting  Be explicit about the support you would like  Outline your previous experience  Discuss your expectations of the attachment and be open to help to adjust this  Trainees can become very disappointed if the attachment doesn’t live up to their expectations - so be realistic  Review last ARCP outcome and any learning objectives from last attachment

13 Initial Meeting  Ask your supervisor to highlight learning opportunities that you may have overlooked  Create a Personal Development Plan (PDP)  Record meeting in portfolio  Complete Education Induction Meeting Record and send to the Trust Education Centre  Set a date for next meeting – its easier to re- arrange an existing appointment then remember to make one

18 Personal Development Plans - PDP  Documented process to help trainee to: focus ideas identify specific learning need identify steps required to achieve learning need identify method to assess outcome  A clearly defined PDP will drive the discussion for future meetings and makes it easier to measure progress

19 Key steps  Agree each clear objective – be specific  Break the objective down into achievable steps  Arrange the steps in order and set a date  Set timescale for review of plan  Refresh plan regularly with new timescales and/or objectives  A PDP will change over time in response to circumstances and trainee needs

20 Objectives  Objectives are often skill based and aligned to curriculum outcomes  Objectives should include personal development e.g. communication skills, team working or career goals  Skill based objectives tend to be shorter term whereas personal goals are often longer term
