Introduction – 10 marks
▪ Provide a paragraph outlining what your assignment will cover.
▪ From CW1, you will need to include a brief summary of the job
opportunity that you identified and also the full list of the key skills and
knowledge/expertise that you identified as being required.
▪ These will form the basis for your self-evaluation.
▪ Summary of what the assignment will cover
Introduction – what that means
▪ Summarise the advert/role you chose from your first assignment, highlighting the
competencies and skills needed for that role
▪ It is important that you review the research you did for your first assignment and also the
feedback you got from that assignment.
▪ Include any feedback you got from the first assignment and reflect on how that will impact this
▪ If you don’t want to use the advert from the first assignment, or you were told to identify a
more suitable one, that is fine but you must explain this in the introduction and get the new
one approved by your lecturer.
▪ If you were recommended to review the skills list, then do that at this stage and explain what
you have added.
Personal analysis – 30 marks
A general review of your current skills, knowledge and experience related to those identified
You need to provide evidence for this analysis, so you can include the feedback and
information reviewed within the seminars as well as work experience, and
volunteering. You can also include information from your e-portfolio, if the skills identified
match those in the e-portfolio. The aim is to highlight current strengths, and also areas to
focus your personal development around.
Reflect on the following areas:
What areas do you lack evidence in?
Where do you need further examples / evidence in your applications?
Where do you feel weak in your overall application
▪ Use the SWOT analysis we did earlier in the course to help you think about this.
▪ Include objective evidence as well as reflection
–Feedback from assignments or other modules
–Feedback from work and/or customers
–Feedback from Graduate Challenge e-portfolio if relevant
–You can include any supporting information in the appendices
Career action plan – 20 marks
Once you have identified the areas you need to focus on, you need to prepare a Career
Action Plan which addresses both the personal development and specific career related
activities you will undertake to take you forward.
This plan should include the knowledge, skills and experiences you need to further
develop. You should come up with clear actions to get you to where you want to be. You
should show the resources you will use to move the area of development forward and the
timescales you will complete these in. This should cover as a minimum the time remaining
to your graduation.
This plan can be presented in the form of a table
Career Action plan – what that means
▪How will you address the gaps identified in the previous section?
▪Use SMART objectives. Consider your objectives, success
criteria (how will you identify if you achieve them) and the time
▪As well as building on any gaps, you might also continue to
develop strengths, or take action for some of the opportunities or
▪Don’t just focus on knowledge – identify skills too. A good career
action plan will have a combination of skills, knowledge and
career related activities
SMART Action Plan for skills development
▪For example – if you identify ineffective team-working skills how
would you frame a SMART objective to improve/develop?
▪I will aim to improve my contribution in all group meetings (at
work, in Uni, with friends). I will ask for feedback from colleagues
on the level and quality of contribution.
▪I will aim to take the leadership role in the next group assignment.
Career action plan examples
▪The job description state that one of the responsibilities will be to
gather and analyse data. One of the modules for next year is XXX
which will teach the knowledge and skills I need to analyse data. I
will give myself until the end of the module in order to see whether I
have achieved the goal. I know I will have achieved my goal and
understood all of the business analytical skills that are taught within
the module if I am able to achieve at least a 60% within the module
