Part 1 Reflecting back
Q1 What do you consider were the three most important things (planned or unplanned) that you learned last year? Please also briefly describe how they were learned? 1
I learnt that I need a good set of qualifications to take me through life and achieve what I would like In life and without them that I would not be able to get the jobs that I would like.
I learnt that I definitely wanted to go to university and that the university I would like to go to is definitely Birmingham and that I will need to work extremely hard to get into this university.
I learnt exactly the path I would like to follow in life and the way I need to take it starting with going back to college, then to university then hopefully get a job as a young business manager in an expanding company because that is what I would like to do.
Q2 Please summarise the value you’ve added to your organisation/learning environment/clients/customers over the last 12 months through your professional development?
Ive added some grades into the equation as 12 months ago I hadn’t really got any job prospects and I was not at college. Now I have added the value to my educational environment because I am studying hard to achieve good grades to get into university.
