cite key factors and/or life events (both positive and negative) that have contributed to the development of your value base
Assessment: CW 1: Position Paper
Specifically, you need to: • cite key factors and/or life events (both positive and negative) that have contributed to the development of your value base • explore how previous personal and professional experiences have influenced your development • describe key learning experiences in life, outlining how these connect with your desire to work with people and your ability to do so • describe the personal qualities and skills (including transferable skills) that you bring with you to the course and to the social work profession. As you reflect on this dimension keep in mind the Professional Capabilities Framework highlight in ‘Developing skills for practice’ section of this module handbook. Where applicable link personal qualities and skills to the PCF • identify, personal, academic and professional developmental needs and elaborate on potential strategies that you might apply to help you address them over the course of the programme.
While your paper is to some extent deeply personal in nature, it is essentially reflective. You will not be assessed on how much you reveal, but rather the extent to which you understand and anticipate any potential conflicts of values and belief systems, which you may encounter in everyday social work. You are not meant to write about anything you would be hesitant to share with other people. Fundamentally you are writing about YOU; your start point on this course and your explanation as to how you came to be here and what you hope to do in the future. In writing this, you will be using skills like reflection, evaluation and action planning.
You should also anticipate your short term goals and what you will need to do to achieve them, look ahead and determine your needs for the coming three years on the Programme and then look at all of these needs in relation to your anticipated professional role.
