Learning from experience
From plotting what happened when, the next step is thinking about what you’ve learned from these different roles and experiences, and how you’ve developed as a person over time.
Look at Lesley’s timeline again but with some key learning points added.
The purple boxes summarise what Lesley has learned at different points in her life. The early part of her timeline shows that she enjoyed learning and was good with new challenges.
The middle, challenging, section of her timeline has produced a lot of different learning points relating to her caring role and her experience as a parent.
In the final section we can see that Lesley still enjoys learning. She has gained confidence from appreciating that she can succeed with a course.
Listen to Lesley talking about what she has learned.
