I am writing to express my concerns about the marking procedures
of our PDR's. I worked very hard in order to get my pdr submitted
for the May board, only to be told that it was not marked due to the
numbers submitted that month. I have just rung CILIP to be told
that the board scheduled for June was cancelled as there were not
enough PDR's submitted for a board to be held.
I find this quite frankly to be unacceptable. My salary will rise quite
considerably when I get my chartership, and obviously as my pdr
has not been marked yet, this has not happened. I actually feel
greatly let down by my professional body. I feel that for the money
in subscription fees and the money it costs to actually submit the
pdr, the least CILIP could do is mark this for me. However I am
now wondering whether all the money I have spent and the hard
work I have done, was really worth it.
