Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

From the authors: “Students work through the questions on the assessment rating their level of competence. As they do this it is crucial to their own development that they fully reflect upon their findings. Each question on the form asks the learner to provide evidence of how they can demonstrate that they have attained a specific employability skill. The learners are prompted to use the STAR model to demonstrate their competence. This model allows for critical reflection and action evidence that can be drawn upon as students prepare for moving into the work place or further student.”
