Personal Development

Introduction

What is PD?

PD stands for Personal Development which is where young people learn the skills they need to grow into successful and safe young adults.

Why is PD in schools important?

PD is important as it in these lessons that young people learn how to cope with change and challenge; where they learn the risks associated with drink, drugs and sex and develop the ability to make responsible decisions; where they are able to consider their future plans and practice the skills required to achieve them. PD supports and complements other areas of the curriculum and allows students the opportunity to develop strong inter-personal skills.
