Task: 1.Logon to 2.Register 3.Go to ‘Build your Profile’ 4.Answer the questions 5.Tick box to see profile results 6.View ‘best match’ skills
1.Think of a task you completed where you used this skill. 2.Look at level 4, have you done this? 3.Write your evidence explaining what you did and making sure it meets the standard. Dictionary definition
Let’s do it! Showing evidence Level 3 TaskEvidence to meet standards Use the language of the standards Level 3: Sophie is doing A Levels. Every term has to assess her performance in her subjects against a set of assessment criteria given to her by the teacher. She then has to set targets to show how she will improve. This term she has said she will read more background information for English and see a play which is on locally. Sophie assessed her performance and set targets for improvement Level 3: Explain how you assessed your own capabilities against given criteria and how you engaged in guided development activities which helped you improve. Task should show independent performance
Let’s do it! Showing evidence Level 4 TaskEvidence to meet standards At Level 4 you will also have to explain how you reviewed and developed the performance of yourself and others. Level 4: In his role at Sports Direct Jordan has to assess his performance each week against the goals set for him by the company. He looks at data to review his performance as well as others in the company. He is asked to assesses who is best for what job so that they can meet company goals. Sometimes, without supervision, he has to assign staff to different roles. He often supervises new staff and he tries to pass on tips and suggestion about how they can meet company goals. Jordan assessed his own and others’ performance against company targets and supervised new staff in meeting company targets. Task should show independent performance
Task: 1.Start with your best match skill. 2.Identify a task you completed where you used the skill. 3.Add your evidence, matching it to the standards for 4 or 5 skills. You can use the same task more than once but… make sure the evidence explains how you used that skill. E.g. if the skills is problem solving write about how in the task you did that, if communication then write about how you used that skill. Don’t forget to save
Work in pairs to help each other improve the evidence so it matches the standard. Ask: What did you do to …? Why did you decide to do that? How did you go about it? What outcome did you achieve?, etc. Let’s do it! Work in pairs
Let’s do it! How to use your results If you are not sure that HE is for you If you are not sure what course to do When applying for a higher education level course If you decide to apply for an Apprenticeship, college course or job
