What is the role of PDP in identity development and confidence building in Foundation degree students, specifically adult women?
Although there is no standard approach, PDP takes place in all courses through a variety of means: personal tutoring, career planning, study skills provision (assessed or not), production of transcripts of marks and electives. On entry, all students are required to complete a self-assessed learning profile that is discussed in later tutorials. The CETL Foundation Direct supports an assessed online unit for Foundation degrees that includes educational and life planning, professional development and careers enhancement.
