Personal Development Objectives to Meet My Goals


(what do I need to do to get where I want to be?)
In order to meet my goals, I need to improve on quite a few things. Namely I need
to work on my teamwork skills because as a pilot you always work with a partner.
So I will try to participate in teamworking opprotunities whilst training a professional

pilot. Apart from my qualifications, I need to have good organisational skills as I will
need to complete many assignments and examinations during my training.

How can others help me accomplish these objectives?


My teachers will help me achieve my level 3 qualification by teaching me and
helping me through my assignments. They will also give me constructive feedback
which will help become a better person
My parents will initally help me by funding my course for the first few months. After
that should I get a part time job, I will pay the remaining fees myself.

What are some educational activities that will help me reach my goals?
