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)**|
|Managing time||To make sure time is used equally on each module. Also it will help me to plan enough time to do work and also relax.||I know this as when I studied my a levels I kept so many hours where I had to work so if something came up I would have to say I was busy. This was to make sure I had completed enough work.|
|Teamwork||To make sure everyone is involved in decisions and also to share ideas with others.||I completed my Duke of Edinburgh and there we had to make sure everyone was involved in reading the map, doing questionnaires and taking pictures. We also had to check that everyone was feeling ok and everyone was walking as a team.|
