What is SLS?

The Skills and Learning Statement (SLS) is the opportunity for the student to show that they have developed the important or “key” graduate skills of self-reflection and communication. The student will give the necessary evidence of self-reflection by answering the proposed questions. The communications skills will be developed by preparing and giving a presentation to their Mentor. A copy of the PowerPoint presentation needs to be included in the submission of the project as a proof of the skill development.

The SLS must be based on the following four questions:

  1. Reflect on what you have learnt from the meetings with your Mentor, including the presentation that you gave to your Mentor?
  2. To what extent do you think you have achieved the RAP research objectives you set?
  3. How have you demonstrated your interpersonal and communication skills during the project work?
  4. Reflect on how undertaking the RAP helped you in your accountancy studies and/or current employment role?

Important and significant part of the working or learning parts of a person’s life is the ability to evaluate the personal performance and be aware and know the personal development needs. Has everything that has been planned, achieved? If the answer is no, then what should that person improve in the future? Sometimes cooperation with other people really helps complete the set objectives; the ability to make the most of the resources and do an effective communication are two very important personal attributes. The ACCA education provides knowledge in accounting and business, and the research that is necessary only enhances the practical skills of the student. What does the student benefit from preparing a RAP project?

The answers to the SLS questions are allowing insight into the student’s personal issues. Even though there are only four questions and a word count of only 2,000 words, the student should not write a precise 500 word answers to each question. Many students find that they need more words to answer one and less words to answer another question. It is recommended that the student write from 350 to 650 word answers on each questions, and stay within the prescribed word count of 2,000 words.
