Abstract

Gives a personal viewpoint of the LA′s CPD scheme. The Personal Profile can prove to be a useful tool for career planning and evaluation. Despite this, it appears to be lacking in use – why? Effective and beneficial use demands time and commitment – commodities which are often in short supply. Examines the advantages and disadvantages of the voluntary format and also compares them with the compulsory nature of the Law Society′s similar scheme. Benefits to both individuals and their organizations can be gained if the scheme is used. Library Association statistics reveal what appears to be a poor take‐up rate of the Profile . Perhaps there is a need for feedback about the scheme – both positive and negative – from individuals who have used it and from other professions operating similar schemes?
