How EWC is helping your professional development
When you think of professional learning, you might think of activities such as courses or training days – but there’s no need for it to be so formal. Many informal experiences you have every day will impact upon on your professional development.
The Education Workforce Council’s (EWC) Professional Learning Passport (PLP) is a fully bilingual and flexible online tool that is available to support all registrants capture their experiences. It’s packed full of features that are designed to support you in planning, recording, structuring and reflecting upon your learning (both formal and informal), with the ultimate aim of improving practice.
Just create or upload evidence of your experiences, then take the time to reflect. What went well? What didn’t work so well? Have you learned anything? What changes will you make going forward? To help you get started, you’ll find a range of simple templates available to guide you through the reflective process.
And remember, the PLP is confidential and portable so as long as you’re registered with us, you and only you will have access to any content you have created unless you wish to share it. Professional Learning Passport
