Assignment introduction

“The combination of the ongoing COVID-19-related global recession and increased automation in the future of work has led to a large-scale disruption of the jobs and skills landscape. While previous generations of talent could expect linear career progression and engagement in formal learning that decreases over time, the workforce of the future will be required to rapidly learn and relearn new skills as reskilling, upskilling and redeployment define the ‘new normal’ in the future of work”.

This assignment assesses the student`s understanding of factors impacting the labour market, the skills and experience needed for a sustainable graduate career and personal factors that impact career choice.

Task (100 marks)

You will explain your career plan in 5-minutes on Zoom. The career plan will be expected to cover three areas (please see below):

1) Knowing why (1 minute): what factors have motivated you to choose this career pathway? These could include occupational interests, strengths or values.

2) Knowing what (2 minutes): what career are you interested in pursuing in the future? This should logically flow from ‘knowing why’ and should also include your knowledge of factors affecting that area of work in the future. You should use labour market information to interpret current challenges and opportunities and understand how these may affect your chosen area of work.

3) Knowing how (2 minutes): you will need to discuss three practical steps that you will take to get into this career. These will need to be achievable based on your current and future personal circumstances.

Assessment criteria

  • Knowledge and understanding of factors influencing the labour market, the sustainability of the chosen career pathway and future employability needs.

  • Knowledge and understanding of the concept of Global Citizenship applied to selecting a graduate role.

  • Clear understanding of the reasons for choosing a particular career.

  • Ability to demonstrate clear communication and confident verbal delivery skills.

  • Feasibility of practical actions for career development (taking into consideration the individual’s circumstance).

Points to consider

  • Justification of your choice of sector and/or occupation in relation to your values, interests or strengths.
  • Understanding of issues that affect the sustainability of the chosen career with the use of relevant labour market information (including challenges and opportunities).
  • Clarity of expression, confident verbal delivery skills and excellent time management skills (ensuring that you use the allocated time effectively).
  • How realistic the proposed development activities are, given your own situation.

Table 2: ANGLIA RUSKIN UNIVERSITY GENERIC ASSESSMENT CRITERIA AND MARKING STANDARDS

LEVEL 5 (was level 2)

Level 5 reflects continuing development from Level 4. At this level students are not fully autonomous but are able to take responsibility for their own learning with some direction. Students are expected to locate an increasingly detailed theoretical knowledge of the discipline within a more general intellectual context, and to demonstrate this through forms of expression which go beyond the merely descriptive or imitative. Students are expected to demonstrate analytical competence in terms both of problem identification and resolution, and to develop their skill sets as required.
