Reflective Journal - What do you think is the current level of engagement in your organisation?

CIPD Level 5 5HR01 Reflective journal

About this journal

Welcome to your CIPD 5HR01 ‘Reflective journal’ – a dedicated space for you to stop, breathe, and reflect on all the progress you’re making and what you’ve learned in this unit.

To make your learning journey more impactful, it’s important to reflect each week on what you’ve learned, and how you can apply the concepts to your own life.

So, use the space provided in this journal template to make notes on:

  • What you learned from each week
  • Any new terminology you’ve come across
  • Anything else that you may want to write!

Most importantly, think of this journal as your own personal guide to your progress. To get the most out of it, make sure you use it consistently, diligently, and in a way that works for you!

When you finish your qualification, you’ll have reflective journals for each of your units. These can be used as an amazing takeaway/portfolio of evidence of what you’ve learned, something that can really serve you well in the future. What do you think is the current level of engagement in your organisation?

Using this journal

At the end of each week’s learning, you’ll be given an opportunity to stop and reflect on what you’ve learned. You’ll be given a few reflective questions to answer. Take some time to think about these and use the spaces in this document to jot down your thoughts.

You may find from time to time that you don’t have a lot to say – and that’s okay. As long as you take the time to reflect at the end of the unit: this time is for you to think about the key learnings from that week and how you can apply them going forward.

While we’ll encourage you to reflect at these key points during your course, feel free to add any other notes you have at any point. You don’t have to wait for us to tell you when to reflect.

The ongoing digitisation and automation of industry is known as thefourth industrial revolution. It has brought about a new world of work, affecting workers on a global level.

For most people, navigating change is not easy. It can cause significant distress, resulting in feelings of anxiety, fear, anger and confusion. It is vital that workers get the support they need. But their employers need support too – getting organisations to pull their people together is more important than ever.

However, in reality, this is a lot more challenging than it sounds.
