Assessment
instructions The purpose of this assessment is to provide the opportunity for students to reflect upon and examine their professional placement environment and the employability skills they expect to develop and how these employability skills are utilised within their placement.
Employability means the ability to find, create and sustain meaningful work across the career lifespan. Employability skills facilitate your employability and can include communication, teamwork, adaptability, initiative and leadership. These skills can also extend to industry/discipline technical skills such as specific IT platforms and systems knowledge.
The first two assessments for WIL201A will focus on two themes being Journal Entry 1 (Expectation) and Journal Entry 2 (Application).
JOURNAL ENTRY 1 (EXPECTATION)
You have recently commenced your Professional Placement and this represents a significant learning event worthy of reflection.
Refer to the framework, instructions and prompt questions below to help guide your Journal Entry:
Introduction – 200 words guide
Provide some context to your Professional Placement including your role / title, the organisation, its structure and its core activities.
Body – Identify and Reflect – 600 words guide
Provide a brief outline of your initial on-boarding to your professional placement (initial introductions, induction and/or on-the-job training and tasks).
Using the template ‘Role expectations’ provided, outline how your CliftonStrengths Signature Themes can support you in meeting the expectations of your role. Please attached the completed template as an appendix at the end of your assessment.
Draw upon your onboarding experience and the role expectation template to identify two employability skills you believe will be required and further developed throughout your placement and how these skills might be used in your role.
Identify an additional employability skill you had prior to placement. How was it developed? Reflect upon how this skill is being applied in the placement so far.
Conclusion – 200 words guide
Conclude your initial commencement. Explain how your commencement affected you. This could be positive or negative. You may have felt frustrated, elated, confused or relieved. Why did you feel this way? Did you feel overwhelmed by the skills needed to be learnt?
Were you relieved that you had skills that could be used straight away? Were you confused by the on-boarding process or lack of guidance or were you well supported?
What have you learnt that will help you in future?
Readings for the assessment On the Student Support Centre (SSC) resource page there are a variety of academic resources and tips available to support students with their tasks and activities including reflective writing style.
This assessment is to be written in first person. First person point of view uses pronouns such as ‘I/we’, ‘me/us’, ‘my/mine’, ‘our/ours’. This is a reflective piece of writing therefore first person point of view is the most appropriate form of writing.
For additional information on Employability Skills see https://www.jobjumpstart.gov.au/article/what-are-employability-or-soft-skills and otherwise refer to credible on-line sources including those listed in the Subject Outline on Moodle.
Further tips and examples may also be available on Moodle. No specified reading material.
