Instructions on Assessment

The module will be assessed by one summative assessment of 3500 words which comprises the following three components:

Part A – academic essay (1500 words)    40% of overall mark

Self-awareness is the key to career success. Using a range of relevant literature (both academic and professional sources), choose 2 of the core topics we have studied on this module and explore and critically evaluate why it is important for leaders and managers to develop in these areas for their successful career development.

You must include the following in your essay:

  • A definition of self-awareness and an explanation of why it is important to the development of leadership and/or management capability. 
  • Identify 2 of the core module topics from the following: giving and receiving feedback, values, learning to work in a team, emotional intelligence, cultural intelligence, personality, motivating self and others, leadership and management, and explain their importance to the development of a manager’s or leader’s self-awareness.

Part B – Establishing the Possessional and the Positional: A self-analysis  (1500 words)   40% of overall mark

This part comprises:

  • An overview of the context of your target job/profession/industry/sector with a focus on why you need to develop in the topics you have selected in order to succeed in this chosen sphere of work (300 words).
  • A self-analysis identifying your strengths and weaknesses across the range of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills relevant to your target profession/industry/sector. To complete this statement you will draw on both academic and professional sources together with the results of toolkits and/or psychometric texts you have completed during the course of this module, including those related to your topics of exploration in Part A (1200 words).
HR9737 Leadership and Management

To complete the self-analysis you must:

  • Use the template provided – please download this from the Assessment Folder on the BB site – provide a summary of your strengths and weaknesses.
  • This summary must be supported with evidence from the toolkits and other psychometric test results provided to you, or that you have identified from previous work or assessment centre experience, or researched online.   You must use at least 6 tool kits including your results from the Career Enhancement Model of Employability (CEME) questionnaire.

NB. The contents of this table are not included in the word count for your submission

Your template answers the question – what skills, attributes and characteristics do I possess?

Secondly, you must:

  • Include a reflective statement in which you critically evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and reflect on any patterns of behaviour identified.  Your statement should be underpinned with relevant academic and professional sources
  • Consider what are the implications of your current skills, attributes and characteristics in relation to your target job/profession/industry/sector, ie.  how ‘ready’ are you to enter into the career of your choice?  Demonstrate the ability to work in culturally diverse groups and teams and make appropriate and personal contributions to team effectiveness

NB This statement is included in the overall word count for your submission

This reflective statement establishes your ‘position’

Demonstrate the ability to work in culturally diverse groups and teams and make appropriate and personal contributions to team effectiveness

Part C – What Next: Establishing Areas for Development (500 words)  10% of overall mark

This final part establishes the ‘processual’ – the ‘what next’ element to your career development

  • Based on your self-analysis in Part B outline three areas for development - aligned with your discussion in Parts A and B - which will enable you to bridge the gap between where you are now and where you need to be in the future to ensure career success in your target profession/industry/sector.
  • Conclude your assignment with how the CEME questionnaire has enabled you to think more strategically and long-term about your career development.

Professional presentation of your essay:   10% of overall mark

  • You must present all component parts in one document. 
  • You must use the template provided on the Blackboard site to set out your strengths and weaknesses in Part B.
  • You must present your work to the academic standard commensurate with Level 7 and that you use APA referencing throughout. 
  • You are not required to submit your tool kit findings as an appendix.  If you include an appendix you will be penalised, and lose marks in this section.

Academic Misconduct

The Assessment Regulations for Taught Awards (ARTA) contain the Regulations and procedures applying to cheating, plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct.            

The full policy is available at: http://www.northumbria.ac.uk/sd/central/ar/qualitysupport/asspolicies/

You are reminded that plagiarism, collusion and other forms of academic misconduct as referred to in the Academic Misconduct procedure of the assessment regulations are taken very seriously by Newcastle Business School.  Assignments in which evidence of plagiarism or other forms of academic misconduct is found may receive a mark of zero.
