  • an understanding of the various skills that you have developed as a carer and in your wider roles and how these are transferable to other situations

  • an appreciation of personal qualities developed through your caring role

  • a chance to think about your goals and aspirations for the future

  • an idea of how you might work towards these goals and where you may get help and support

  • the ability to use information technology (IT) to carry out reflective activities in writing and communicating
