WRI staff may request to attend a seminar/class with an external vendor to develop skills that address a specific programmatic need. The development opportunities should have a set curriculum and learning objectives. Participants will integrate what they learn for the training into their performance goals and objectives for the fiscal year.
Directors and managers should work to identify professional development opportunities and share their requirements with the HR Department early in the planning process. This will allow HR to gain a comprehensive view of WRI’s development needs and plan accordingly.
External Professional Development Examples
Professional Tests (example: PMD Pro)
Professional Development Request Guidelines
