Guidance

Your assignment should include: a title page containing your student number, the module name, the submission deadline and the exact word count of your submitted document; the appendices if relevant; and a reference list in AU Harvard system(s). You should address all the elements of the assignment task listed below. Please note that tutors will use the assessment criteria set out below in assessing your work.

Please note that exceeding the word count by over 10% will result in a 10-percentage point deduction

Assignment Task

Consider the content and theory that you have learnt in the Module - Managing Self and Others and apply this to answer the following question

Question 1 - Career Development and Lifelong Learning

1. Create your own individual PDP that shows evidence of your development achieved in the past 12 months and applies your planned development for the next 12 months.

To achieve this, you must demonstrate how you manage yourself. This should include how you manage stress, positive thinking and assertiveness to produce your own career development plans. You should create plans for goal setting, a personal skills audit and a personal SWOT. From this, you can then create your PDP.

Within your PDP include examples and evidence that demonstrate advanced learning methods, learning resources, learning timescales, expected outcomes and any necessary communications that may support your learning and development. Please read Lesson 3 Career Development, Future Planning and Reflective Practice for information on how to complete your skills audit, SWOT and PDP. (800 words) (20 marks) (LO5)

2. Produce an illustrated report that assesses how strategies for skills development and lifelong learning may enable career development for you and your team colleagues.

To achieve this, evaluate concepts associated with career development strategies in order to consider how the skills and career development of employees through integrated personal development planning may support employee motivation and, ultimately, employee retention and progression. (1200 words) (30 marks) (LOs 1 & 2)

Question 2 - High Performance Individuals and Teams

  1. Create your own blog to produce a concise summary to answer the following:

How may high performance people be developed by effective performance management?

To achieve this, you must undertake a series of postings and exchanges using either the ilearn Discussion Forum (with students) or your own blog site (with work colleagues) using examples from your workplace or previous experience. It will be important to engage with other students or colleagues from as early as week 2 of this module to promote collaborative learning and gain different perspectives. Evaluate concepts associated with career development strategies.

The blog content should be pasted into an appendix and referred to in your summary.

Please see your Tutors weekly posting + Live Chats for additional guidance for this task. (1000 words) (25 marks) (LOs 3 & 4)

2. Produce an illustrated report that evaluates how high-performance strategies enable you to reflect on how you may work effectively as part of a team.

To achieve this, consider how strategies intended to develop high performance may enable you to meet your personal development needs when working with individuals (individual differences, perceptions and attitudes, learning, development and motivation communication skills) and, in doing so, help create high performing teams. (1000 words) (25 marks) (LOs 3, 4 & 5)

Formative Feedback

You have the opportunity to submit your DRAFT outline / plan for question 1 and 2 to receive formative feedback.

The feedback is designed to help you develop areas of your work and it helps you develop your skills as an independent learner.

If you are a distance learning student, you should submit your work, by email, to your tutor, no later than 2 weeks before the actual submission deadline. If you are a blended learning student, your tutor will give you a deadline for formative feedback and further details.

Formative feedback will not be given to work submitted after the above date or the date specified by your tutor - if a blended learning student.

Referencing Guidance

You MUST underpin your analysis and evaluation of the key issues with appropriate and wide ranging academic research and ensure this is referenced using the AU Harvard system(s).

Assessment Criteria (Learning objectives covered - all)

Level 6 study represents the student’s increasing autonomy and independence in relation to their knowledge, understanding and skills. At Level 6, students are expected to demonstrate problem solving skills in both practical and theoretical contexts.

This should be supported by an understanding of appropriate theory, creativity in expression and thought based on independent but informed judgements. Students should demonstrate the ability to seek out, invoke, analyse and evaluate competing theories and claims to knowledge and work in a critically constructive manner. Work at this level is articulate, coherent and skilled.
