View your Career Development Plan

The Career Development Plan is an interactive feature and allows you as an employee to understand what is required for you to develop or progress in to a different role – whether this is for a higher position, or a different specialism. This dashboard will give you visibility of what skills are required for the new role compared the role you are currently in, making it easier to identify skill gaps and areas of improvement. The dashboard contains several features, all of which are outlined in this guide.

Please note that as this is a beta feature, functions are subject to change and enhancement until the feature moves out of the beta phase.
