Q: I haven't shown my career entry and development profile to my induction tutor yet. Do I have to, or is it too late?

A: Yes, you do, it's one of your responsibilities within induction. You need to discuss what you wrote for transition point one and then start talking through the areas within transition point two about strengths and professional development priorities.

It's useful to have someone to prompt you and help you dig down into why you think what you think. Write up the discussion in whatever way you like.

The important thing is that you end up with clear objectives and action plans that are going to help you develop.
