A portfolio is a perfect way to evidence and reinforce what you have achieved, in your professional capacity. It allows you to keep an up-to-date record of your career – including achievements, skills, qualities and qualifications. Benefits of a portfolio include being able to assess own development; and track various accomplishments – such as CPD. This may form part of a wider requirement, such as appraisal and reviews at work. Other benefits include being able to help you prepare for interviews, as well as prepare for the registration and revalidation of various professional/ accreditation bodies.
