Good Afternoon year 13
for those who are on track to complete this unit by half term I attache the unit spec here to keep you focused on the next task for P5.
P3 'requires you to carry out a transferable skills audit to identify your business skills gaps' You first have to completed a comprehensive skills audit based on your SELF SWOT and in particularly considered the different aspects of PLTS that you need to focus on in your chosen career. See Mr T's links here for your self assessment PLTS Profile and PLTS levels or success criteria.. You need to JUSTIFY why you gave it the levels that you did and provide examples to support your evaluation.I have attached two PLTS powerpoint slides to remind you what these are!
P5 expects you to demonstrate the transferable business skills that you have already acquired and its always the creative ones that find exciting ways to do this part of the unit effectively. P5 expects you to build on the OUTCOMES of your P3 skills audit and consider the different ways that you intend to develop these transferable business skills at the appropriate level. It might be a good idea to start by defining what they are!
The development of some skills may be measurable through qualification levels for example functional skills. Other skills may be measurable through observation and may require a range of evidence such as TUTOR OBSERVATION SHEETS, WORK EXPERIENCE FEEDBACK on the development of time management skills etc Some activities can be done on the job if you have one whereas others can be carried out off the job and usually include training sessions or shadowing oppourtunites.
M3 requires you to 'assess ways of achieving the required level and type of transferable business skills needed for the career plan.
D2 requires you to 'evaluate your own development of transferable business skills'
