Assessment Task

You have spent the last few weeks becoming a strong reflective practitioner, undertaking a range of activities around being ‘self-aware’, not only of your current skill set but also the areas where you need to develop your professional skills.

We now want you to write up this first topic area, so as to start building towards your assessment. For your assessment you will need to use this in the following sections; the Grademark table outline for this is also included on the last page:

  • Reflection and discussion around your self-awareness in your skills mapping related to the position you are applying for; clear examples need to be shown of how you know you have these skills, for example, work experience, volunteering, sports, student rep, college opportunities etc;
  • Reflection and discussion around your self-awareness of the psychometrics and other skills/behaviour surveys you undertook, showing how these illustrate a good match to the job role you applied for;
  • Discussion of the development plan you wrote from your analysis of your skills audit, identifying challenges to your career aspirations.  This should include either SMART or HARD goals showing at least 1 x short term goal (end of L4), 1 x medium-term goal (end of University) and 1 x long term goal (first promotion);

Therefore, what we want to see now is you completing the template documents provided to produce a summary of your reflections using the Rolf model of reflection that we have discussed already:

Your skills audit reflection outcomes –

What were your areas of developed skills, with specific examples of how you gained these?  What were your skills gaps?  So What –  why are these important to know/fill?

What did the psychometrics and skills/behaviours surveys outline as your strengths? What did they say around development areas – So what did you learn from this?

So what  – Think about what area placement/internship you may be looking to apply for/use in this assessment – why might the outcomes above be important. How are you going to use this knowledge and reflection in the future?
