3.2.2 Identify what you hope to achieve and opportunities to work on this key skill

It is always a good idea to know what you hope to achieve in the future in terms of your learning, personal or career goals. This might be very specific, for example to improve your report writing, or it might be more general, such as, to ask for and use feedback more effectively. If you are using this in a work context, you may wish to include personal and career goals.

This year I have set myself the goal of using WORD more effectively. I want to do this to improve the presentation of my work and also to improve my time management. I have four assignments that I have to submit over the next 6 months that will involve integrating tasks, text, and even graphics! And I can use these to practise my key skills. On my plan I have set aside time to practise my word processing skills and I have also enrolled on a short course at the local college.

Time out

Add comments to your skills audit about those aspects which have the highest priority for improvement and why you have selected them. Once you have identified your goals, you need to plan when you can develop and practise your skills over the next 3 months or so.
