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)**|
|Self confidence||During discussions to be able to put my point of view across|
|Manage Time||To create my own timetable of not only when I am attending set classes but also when I will spend time reflecting on what I have learnt|
|Act as a leader||If others may be struggling during a group task then I can take responsibility and guide them|
|Listen to others||To ensure everyone’s views are heard and no one feels ignored|
** This section should be completed as you identify when/where/how you have used/developed these skills.
