6 What you should present

This assessment course has two parts. Part A requires you to show what you did to plan, monitor, evaluate and reflect upon your skills. Part B requires you to select examples of your work that demonstrate you can use and improve your skills in working with others. Together the two parts form a portfolio of your achievements. You can use the guidance, bookmarks and skills sheets included in the OpenLearn Course Key skills – making a difference [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] to help you structure and present your work.

You will need to make judgements about how well you have achieved the required standards, and make your own assessment of the quality of your work. To help you do this, Table 1 gives statements about the outcomes you should be aiming for, the criteria you should use to assess the quality of your work, and guidance about the evidence you need to present. If you were to present your work for assessment, the assessors would use the same criteria to judge the evidence you have selected.

Check your work carefully making sure that it actually shows the criteria have been met, and annotate it to show your learning journey in working with others. To help you select appropriate evidence refer to Table 1 while you are working on this assessment course.

To complete your portfolio, include a contents page (see the example in Figure 1) that lists the items of evidence you are including for each part.
