I posted my PPDP to CILIP on Wednesday.
I haven't done my framework template, but I will try to get some thing drafted up by the end of this weekend.
Have visited my local public library as it's "Save our Libraries Day" today and borrowed some books. The library did seem quite busy, but I don't normally visit on a Saturday so I don't know if their visitor numbers are up today! Am off to my other job this afternoon (Coventry Uni) but I'm sure that if it is busy it is due to assignments or presentation deadlines coming up.
I will also try to some reading done, there was an interesting article in MMIT on using skype for information sessions. Some careers centres are using skype for guidance consultations so it will be interesting to find out if there is similarities in the benefits for students whether it is being used for careers or information.

I have just finished my draft PPDP and have emailed to my mentor to see if it is ok. So now it's wait and see!
I need to start looking at examples of good CV's. I'll have to have a look on the CILIP website to see if there are any examples and will have a look at work (CV Example Library). I'm going to sign up to attend the "Effective Applications Workshop". As I'm sure it will help me to produce my CV.
Attending this workshop will also be good for my chartership as I will be able to learn more about the role of a "job search adviser" and will increase my customer service skills when I'm working on the Helpdesk. As I will be able to enthuse about the workshop and answer more of the students questions (and I like it when I can answer with first hand experience).
I also want to develop a template to use as a reflective tool for projects, events, workshops or courses that I have attended or completed. I will get that finished by the end of this week!!! THINK POSITIVE.
It's save Public Libraries day on 5th February 2011, we'd better get doing our bit & borrow some books or tweet why you love your public library.
