There are Six tasks in this portfolio so please complete all of them.

You should note that:

– Task 1 is not related to the other tasks, but task 2 , 3 , 4 , 5 and 6 are related to each other.

– When you finish from task 1 then start writing task 2,3,4,5 and 6.

Task 1 “ Employment related experience (550 words)

The aim of this assessment is to give you an opportunity to learn from experiences which will enhance your value to a potential employer
Write a report reflecting on the skills learned from the experience gained from an activity you have taken part in, outside your academic studies.

From the list I have already chosen this activity below:

– Organise an event for a group of more than 15 people which entertains, helps, or informs

You must show evidence to authenticate your involvement with the activity- see below.

The purpose of the task is to give you the opportunity to take part in activities where you will learn through experience skills which will enhance your CV and develop your professional competence. Most importantly the task you take part in should increase your awareness of the skills you have gained which will contribute to your increased employability. In other words you will be identifying the skills which should show a future employer that you are worth employing.

Although the task you chose will involve you in careful planning and possibly quite a lot of work, the report has to be concise and fairly brief.

What to write in the report:

Your report should contain the following sections plus evidence

1. Describe what you did. Include in this how you set the activity up, and examples of the sorts of things you had to do. Describe any significant events or problems which happened during your involvement in the task.

2. Describe what you learned. “ Think through ( reflect on ) what you did in some detail and analyse the skills you have used and developed which would improve your effectiveness in a real work situation.

For instance if you organised an event, you would have had to decide what was going to happen during the event; how long each part should last; and what time things should happen so that the event would fit into a particular time slot and start and finish on time. To do this effectively you have used the skills of scheduling or time management. You might have had to carefully choose between two alternative events “ and so used decision making skills. You may have also had to use negotiating skills, writing skills, listening skills, problem solving skills, budgeting skills etc. In using these skills you would have developed your capability. In other words you would have learned from the experience.

Your report must analyse the situation you were in and identify the skills you have learned. Don t just give a list of skills though. You must show how they came out of specific activities.

3. Evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. Finally reflect on what you did well and what you could have done better. This is important; even if the activity did not go well or according to plan you can still show that you understand why this was so and how you would do better if you were to do it again

For task 1: some points will help you to complete this task:

1- I organised this event in (Hyde Park) with my friends.

2- The purpose for this event is (entertains).

3- I had a great time with them I really enjoyed. I started this event from 1 o’clock in the afternoon until 6 o’clock in the afternoon as well.
