|Skills and Abilities||
|Organise and plan||*|
|Act as a leader||*|
|Listen to others||*|
|Debate formally and informally||*|
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.
Complete the audit below, using the information from the table above.
|Skills already developed||How will I use these||How do I know (evidence)**|
|organise and plan||this will benefit me as I will use my organisation when planning lessons on placement.||I know this from past experience, for example, I have organised and planned an interview for university and It has went smoothly.|
|listening to others||I will be able to work well in groups and will be able to take criticism as a positive.||I have been told by friends that I am a good listener and I have used criticism I have received before to better myself.|
** This section should be completed as you identify when/where/how you have used/developed these skills.
Part B – Activity 1
|Skills not yet developed||How will I develop these||How do I know (evidence)**|
|self confidence||through group presentations and placement I will become more confident in my self as I will be able to see myself become more open to new things.||I know I haven’t got much elf confidence as I still struggle with group presentations and the idea of placement.|
