Transcript of D2 - Evaluate own development over the duration of the progr
Overall, from the beginning of the course in 2012 until the end of this first year, reviewing my targets throughout has helped me gain knowledge, self-awareness, understanding potential careers, skills like communicating effectively, working with others, technical skills, research skills and personal skills are all things I have developed throughout which have benefited me personally as well as in practice.
D2 - Evaluate own development over the duration of the programme.
By Kate Shreeve
During the course I have been observant and able to identify opportunities for learning during placement. My placement helped me gain knowledge on the individuals using services, different types of health and social workers, different multidisciplinary teams and different kinds of settings available. My knowledge and skills have improved drastically and I have learnt a lot by assessing my own development throughout the course.
During my A levels I did a bit of research into universities but I was undecided on what I wanted to do. When I didn’t achieve the grades needed I decided to apply for this college course and apply for uni that way. Now that the first year is nearly over it is important to do more research as I know for sure I would like to do adult nursing and then progress onto midwifery. On the 30/04/2014 we attended a university convention at the metro radio arena which helped us with options and helped us gain information needed about UCAS points and requirements for the specific courses we want to do. I will carry on researching certain universities and making sure I have all of the requirements needed as well as extra volunteer work etc.
In September 2012 when I first started this course I didn't know what to expect. I was unsuccessful in completing my a levels therefore I decided to enroll on this course. Throughout the course unit 6 helped me to assess our own progression to help me achieve as well as I could on each unit, to understand work in health and care better so I know what to expect and what is expected of me in placement, to understand myself better so I can prepare myself for future training or employment in health and social care, to make an informed career choice for progression from the course and to be successful in progressing to the next stage of my career after completing the course. It started off quite bumpy to begin with as there were constant changes like units we were doing due to different tutors which meant some of us were falling behind. Thankfully I managed to keep on top of work but it was very stressful at the time.
By October the college had found me a placement at a well being centre for the elderly in Killingworth. I was very nervous to start but it was a great experience for me and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Having placement is an essential part of the course and provided me with excellent opportunities to understand work in health and social care and helps me relate the practice to theory throughout units. After completing my 100 hours I got asked if I would like to become a volunteer at the centre which I am still debating but I would like to try and find someone a bit different so I have a wider range of experience on my CV for when it comes to applying for university. Overall I really benefited from placement as I learned so many more skills and a lot more knowledge about that health and social care setting that I didn't have a clue about before hand.
