You are required to respond to four different questions in the preparation of your Skills and Learning Statement. Two of these are directly related to your meetings with your Mentor:
- ‘What did you learn from the meetings with your Mentor, including the presentation that you gave to your Mentor?’
- ‘How have you demonstrated your interpersonal and communication skills during the project work?’
To pass the Skills and Learning Statement you have to show your ability to reflect on judgments that you have made and / or actions that you have taken during your project work. You also have to provide evidence that you recognise your own strengths and weaknesses.
It is very important that you think carefully about what you want to achieve in each of the three meetings. It is equally important to reflect after each meeting on what happened during the meeting and how effective you were in meeting your meeting objectives. If you make a note after each meeting, or keep a personal diary of reflections, then you will have developed some content for possible later use in your Skills and Learning Statement.
