Key skills assessment unit: Working with others

Introduction

Unit image

This key skill focuses on developing your skills in Working with others and applying these skills in your studies, work or other activities over a period of time. To tackle all of this key skill you will need to plan your work over at least 3–4 months to give yourself enough time to practise and improve your skills, to seek feedback from others, and to monitor and evaluate your performance.

A main purpose of this key skill is to guide you through the management of a group activity culminating in a group presentation of the outcomes of the work. It involves you in actively contributing to the presentation of information.

You will need to identify opportunities for developing your skills in Working with others, for example, when:

  • managing and presenting outcomes of a group project;

  • contributing to community activities, such as organising a major event;

  • investigating and implementing ways to improve work practice.

This unit is designed to be studied for 1 hour per week over 50 weeks.
