Personal Professional Development 

At every level of work, different competencies and skills are required. The competencies and skills that fit the work of a bachelor are different from those of a master.

Within the MIRO master programme, the focus is on transitioning from bachelor to master within the same working environment. Within this change, the participant will take a different place, position and attitude within the organization. During the module the participant, immediate working environment, future working environment and management will see these changes in attitude.

Dealing with such changes is a challenge for both the participant as his working environment. Colleagues may portrait different and changing expectations towards the participant. Uncertainty amongst the participant of what can be expected of him, what the participant expects of himself and what competencies and skills the master role entails is a part of personal professional development.

The aim of this module is to assist and coach the participant when developing his master competencies and guide him within his changing working environment.

This module runs during the whole trajectory of the MIRO master programme and consists of the following components:
1. Personal development plan (throughout the whole master)
2. Masterclasses and workshops (years 1 and 2)
3. Theory in group meetings (year 1)
4. Intervision with peers (years 1 and 2)
5. Project (years 1 and 2)
6. Personal coaching interviews (years 1 and 2)
7. Study coaching (throughout the whole master)

The module is developed based on the concept continuing development by feedback and reflection. The coach conversations and interviews are supportive to continuously develop on the personal and professional level. The path chosen by the participant for his personal development is individual and supervised by a Personal Professional Development coach.
