Posted off PPDP

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.,uk/mmit

Will send my PPDP tomorrow

My mentor has looked at my PPDP and it's ok to go! I will post it off tomorrow.

I have arranged to sit on an effective applications workshop on next Friday 11th February 2011.  So that will help me with drafting my own CV and to see how the Student Careers & Skills workshops are used / valued by students compared to me showing them web pages or referring to books for CV examples.  May also help me to answer some of the questions I get asked by students.

I will start drafting a template to use for reflection this week!

In meantime you may want to look at these useful information / library blogs.

Finished my draft PPDP

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.

PPDP nearly finished!

Have just spent another hour amending my PPDP and I think I've almost finished it! 

It's only taken about 3 weeks to do.

The only thing I haven't added is a section on project management or team work .  I'm a bit concerned about this as nearly all of the work I do is team based and I'm left to get on with by myself, setting my own deadlines and prioritising work as necessary, working with colleagues as necessary.  

I haven't done any courses in project management or team working.  I've had a look at the LDC courses and they do a project management course but it lasts for two days until about 4.30 and I have kids that I need to pick up from school at 3.15pm.  But having said this the course is already booked up.   Although the Skills section of Student Careers & Skills do run a time management course for the masters students so I may try to attend that.  

I don't know If really do need to attend a project management course but I suppose it does show an area of weakness. 

Towards my chartership I have:

  1. Almost completed my PPDP
  2. Booked on a course called Conflict in Conversations
  3. Been added to the reserve list on the Being more Assertive course
  4. Arranged to shadow the Medical Librarian

By the end of the weekend I will have completed my PPDP
