Skills and Abilities




 Developing confidence – approaching other, confidence in my abilities (e.g., placement)
  • (MA1)
  •  (MA2)
 Problem-solving (career planning, assignments, seeking advice/help/support, financial)
  •  (MA1)
  • (MA2)
  Assertiveness to agree or disagree – with others, as a critic of reading materials: critical analysis
  •  (MA1) *
  • (MA2)
 Organisational skills – studying, tidiness, managing my learning, working, job/university time plans
  •  (MA1) *
  •  (MA2)
 Working under pressure
  •  (MA1)
  • (MA2)

 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.

Recognition Reflection Action
Skills already developed How will I use these How do I know (evidence)**
 Speaking formally or informally as appropriate – ensuring a professional manner  Throughout MA1, professionalism was a core module and a hugely-debated topic in teaching and education. I learned about my own confidence in being a professional whilst on placement, as I saw the theory of professional conduct  in practice.
 Working as a team member – interacting with others  Team-teaching, collaborative working. I worked in a group in the ‘Working Together’ elective module in MA1 which required planning, organising, being a cooperative and committed team member. *
Meeting deadlines  Using my ability to work under pressure, in order to meet deadlines for assignments, ‘study plan’ schedules: e.g., preparation for the exam in MA1.
Risk-taking – facing challenges
 Being creative – e.g., on placement using my creative skills, blogging
