Describe at least three professional development opportunities that would benefit you based on the areas of improvement and/or gaps you have identified. These competence development opportunities should be suitable to your personal learning style(s), and at least one of them should be free, and only take about an hour, as you will be undertaking it in Assessment Task 5.

Three professional development priorities based on your areas for improvement and/or gaps you have identified. For each of the priorities identified you will also need to provide the reasons why you have identified this as a priority and by when you would like to address the priority. Three professional development activities that you feel would meet your desired areas for improvement or gaps and that you intend to participate in over the next 12 months. The professional development activities could also include the networks that you have identified. At least one of the professional development activities you identified should be in response to the feedback provided during the professional development research you conducted. For your presentation, you should provide examples of how you have ranked your skills and knowledge in the self-assessment ranking. Give at least four for each unit of competency. You should also discuss how useful you found the self-assessment process, as well as how it has informed your professional development plan.
