Knowledge Development Plan Guidance Continued

What do I need to write in my KDP?

1) Two Learning outcomes

  • Can these learning outcomes be taken back to and applied in your setting?
  • Can this information be used to make positive changes to your  working practice?

2) Actions to carry forward from today

  • What immediate things will you look to put in place from today?
  • How will you coordinate this across your setting to ensure everyone is doing the same thing?
  • What guidelines/ frameworks will you need to consider?
  • What resources are available to support you?

3) Long term actions over the next 6-12 months

  • What are you long terms actions?
  • How will you ensure you keep on track?
  • Will you make time to reflect back on the training and revisit the slides to refresh your knowledge?
  • How will you ensure a whole setting approach?

KDP Sign Off

  • Once you submit your KDP the Early Start Nutrition team will review your KDP submission within 48 hours

What if my KDP is not signed off?

  • Occasionally we require delegates to add more detail or correct errors in their KDP’s
  • This is to ensure you’re KDP reflects the evidence based information covered in this training
  • Don’t worry though as you’ll have an opportunity to edit your KDP with any additional information or updates required.
  • In case this happens, we recommend that you save a copy of your KDP for your records.
