Although it is important to identify where we are now, it is not enough to stop there. We need to reflect upon how we can develop the skills where we are less confident and how we can transfer the skills in which we are confident and competent.

Activity 2

Complete the audit below, using the information from the table above.

Skills already developed How will I use these How do I know (evidence)**
 Team Work  I believe team work is essential within schools. You must be capable of working in a coordinated and effective way with fellow colleagues and staff within the school environment.  For the past few years I have worked with different team environments, from educational environments to part time night club work, and developed my team working, and communication skills.
 Take Responsibility  It is necessary to be capable of taking responsibility of your actions and to be confident enough to be sure of your decisions.  Having been promoted in my work outside of university I have had to take responsibility for tasks and staff. I also enjoy being responsible.
