A career plan is the creation of a personal plan describing a person's objectives related to his/her job, development and personal fulfilment in his/her work.
It is not linked to a specific company. It responds to individual aspirations, and enables each employee to guide his/her career to the best of his/her abilities, and to develop through continuing training.
When the career plan is aligned to the company's needs in terms of skills, the benefits are mutual and both parties are more motivated.
Training courses should be chosen as part of an overall career plan. Training is just one step in the process to gain the knowledge and skills required to fulfil the career plan.
