Your Ongoing Professional Development Budget 

It is important that you define and set aside a clear budget for your own ongoing professional development at the start of your budgeting period. As well as ringfencing the funds for your development activity, you could also plan ahead by investigating the different development options available to you and booking places in advance at suitable events. Some coaches don’t do this because they think that if they become busy, and they have already booked a place on a development activity, they will either not want to go, preferring to attend to their client work, or they will go but some of their attention will be on their client work. These coaches prefer to wait until they have a quieter patch before looking around for suitable development activities, hoping that something useful will be available.

I would encourage you to make plans for your more important development activities in advance by booking yourself on workshops, courses and supervision meetings well before the actual date of the activity. These dates will then be in your diary and you will not be available to book client work on them. As well as keeping the specific dates free when booking client work around these times, you will also need to keep free the dates either side of the development activity to give yourself some flexibility. Sticking to your planned development schedule will keep your skills up to date and you refreshed. Working this way will encourage you to:

1.Take seriously your commitment to develop yourself

2.See development activity as a priority

3.Avoid the temptation, when push comes to shove, to use money that could have gone towards your development in another way
