Everyone can benefit from personal and professional development skills and this course covers such essential learning outcomes as self-analysis, goal setting, action planning, time management and performance management.
One of the major outcomes of the course is that each week participants complete activities that will form the building blocks of their final personal and professional development plan. By the end of the course, each participant will have a five-year plan and implementation strategy that makes use of tools such as learning style and personality tests, SWOT analysis, SMART goal setting, time management tools and more.
The Personal and Professional Development (PPD) course is an excellent opportunity for participants to step back from the daily routine and think in-depth about their professional and personal priorities. Clearly identifying personal objectives allows participants to focus on what is important to them, and this helps participants to not only excel in their own field but also become better team players or leaders. Additionally, by engaging their manager as a partner in their PPD plan, participants can be supported in their growth.
The PPD course covers the following key areas:
- Learn and apply self-analysis and SWOT tools
- Psychology of goal setting
- SMART goals
- Time management and communication skills
- Create a Personal and Professional Development Plan
PPD is a six-week facilitated course, delivered via GAClearn.
The GAC Group Management expects that all GAC employees are provided with sufficient time to complete the core requirements of each course within working hours.

“Before embarking in this course, I must admit that I know it is difficult to manage my time between the juggles of my career and family balances, but after pencilling it down on paper and mapping it out, I can assure you it is much clearer and easier to break it down and manage time. I now have daily priorities and I work towards them. I am able to focus more and have the ability to manage my time better. When I created my PPD Plan, it actually provided me time for self-reflection. It has opened doors for me to inspect where my opportunities are, how I can succeed and hold myself accountable to follow through.”
