Key skills - making a difference

9.3.1 Establish opportunities for using skills in working with others

You need to identify activities that will provide you with opportunities for working with others over a period of 3 months or so. This could involve both one-to-one and group situations, such as working on a particular project at work, a group project as part of your course or e-conferencing on a group assignment.

Time out

Check that you have opportunities to work in a team and not simply alongside others. This means you need to have a project or piece of work that involves others where you need to collectively plan, research and do the work. You may find it helpful to discuss your ideas with a manager or tutor at an early stage.
