As most people know, the origin of the current policy on Personal Development Planning (PDP) was Recommendation 20 of the Dearing Report (NCIHE 1997) which suggested that Progress Files (a term that had recently been introduced in the school sector to replace the National Record of Achievement) should be developed in Higher Education, consisting of two elements:

- And a means by which students can monitor, build and reflect upon their personal development.
