Portfolio Plan

Module title: Critical Reflection and Developing Practice

Assessment Point: Formative task

Assessment task: Plan for the Professional Portfolio

Word count limit: 500-700 words

Submission deadline: Please consult the VLE.

Submission procedure: Please submit via the submission link on the VLE.

This assessment DOES NOT carry any points.

General Guidance

Your Plan for the Professional Portfolio should be word processed (handwritten

assignments are not accepted), using time new roman size 12 font, double spaced,

with numbered pages and your student number printed as a footer on every page.

The word limits stated for this assignment excludes the reference list at the end

of the assignment but includes all text in the main body of the assignment

(including direct quotations, in-text citations, footnotes, tables, diagrams and

graphs).

The majority of references should come from primary sources (e.g., journal

articles, conference papers, reports, etc.) although you can also utilise area

specific textbooks. You must ensure that you use the Harvard style of referencing.

Please indicate the word count length at the end of your assignment.

Please note that you are required to submit an extended literature review project

where you will critically evaluate scholarly articles and books in order to answer

specific research questions.

NO STUDENT WILL BE ALLOWED TO COLLECT ANY PRIMARY DATA

Written assignment instructions:
An outline (please the template below) briefly mentioning the points that you

will develop for your final assessment in week 8. You will need to mention
each basic point in a few words (100-200 words) and provide the sources you
will use to develop your points after you conduct your research on the two
topics. Make sure to conduct your literature search for academic sources and
then narrow them down to the ones that are useful for your essay to back up
your arguments with valid information.

The main objectives of your final assessment in week 8 that you will need to
develop further and base your outline on for this formative task are:
Part 1: A summary discussing all the theories and models discussed in the
course.
Part 2: A critical reflection of taking a leadership stance and/or application of
mentoring skills in your practice.

IMPORTANT NOTES
? You will need to separate your outline to Part 1 ? Summary Report and

Part 2 ? Critical Reflection
? You DO NOT need to go through the material after week 4 of the course

to develop your outline, as you can add more points and observations to
your outline as the course progresses.

? This is a task for you to prepare and conduct the pre-writing process
that will help you further with the writing process of your final
assessment.

? After you submit your outline your tutor will provide their feedback and
you can resubmit if necessary.

? This task is NOT graded.
