10. CREATING THE LEARNING PLAN
In this section reference will be made to:
1. The learning plan
2. Rating forms
4. Tap 21
The Learning Plan details the way in which counselor performance may be improved. The sample one-page learning plan is in Word format so that it can expand as needed. Remember the mantra “Keep it simple”. Work on one area of performance improvement before moving to the next; design the activities so that sufficient time is allowed for successful completion of each KSA.
It is important to create the learning plan based on the TAP 21 competencies. The Practice Dimension should be indicated on the learning plan and each competency indicated by a Knowledge, Skill or Attitude should be detailed. A copy of the page from the TAP 21 should be attached to the learning plan and the specific competencies indicated on that copy so there is common understanding regarding expectations.
