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

Using a range of relevant literature (both academic and professional sources), you are required to identify and critically evaluate contemporary issues and challenges facing your target profession/industry/sector. 

You must:

· Provide a clear introduction to your target profession/industry/sector (e.g., a graduate development scheme, self-employment, working for your family’s business, a promotion with your current employer, etc). You should highlight if this will be in the UK, your home country or elsewhere. 

· Provide an overview of the context and key characteristics of your target profession/industry/sector (e.g. labour market characteristics, opportunities for graduates, professional bodies).

· Identify key challenges and issues relating to your chosen profession/industry/sector. This may include professional body viewpoints, recent organisation case studies and published academic studies. You may also include a combination of challenges and issues facing the wider profession/industry/sector as well as those facing postgraduates. 

· You are not required to identify a specific number of issues and challenges, these will differ depending on the profession/industry/sector in question. We are looking for evidence of critical evaluation of these issues and challenges, supported with credible academic and professional sources. 

· Provide a succinct conclusion, indicating the impact of these challenges and difficulties for your target profession/industry/sector moving forward.

Part B – reflective essay (1500 words) 40% of overall mark

Drawing on the results of the toolkits you have completed throughout this module, along with other appropriate evidence, you are required to conduct a self-analysis identifying your strengths and weaknesses across a range of interpersonal and intrapersonal skills relevant to your target profession/industry/sector. 

You must:

· Using the template provided – please download this from the Assessment Folder on the BB site – provide a summary of your strengths and weaknesses supported with evidence from the toolkits and other psychometric test results/other diagnostics provided to you, or that you have identified from previous work or assessment centre experience, or researched online. 

· Critically evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and reflect on any patterns of behaviour you have identified. Referring back to your Section A, consider the implications of your skills, attributes and patterns of behaviour in relation to your target profession/industry/sector and the challenges they face. How ‘ready’ are you to enter into the career of your choice?

Part C – Areas for Development (500 words) 10% of overall mark

Based on your self-analysis in Section B identify three areas for development and outline briefly the specific steps that you will take to address these. 

Presentation: 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.
