Once your work has been marked by your lecturer, you need to collect the coursework and feedback and take this to your Skills Support Officer to have it logged. Each time you see your Skills Support Officer, information on the skills you’ve demonstrated will be recorded and you will be asked to reflect on your skills. This gives you an opportunity to get used to talking about your strengths, and discuss an areas you may need support. Your work or evidence will be stamped to show it has been logged, and you will be emailed a copy of which skills you have demonstrated, and a summary of the reflections from the discussions.
Your work or evidence should be organised in a portfolio to help you manage your personal development. This can be a paper copy or an electronic version – whichever works best for you. One way of doing this electronically is through the e-Portfolio which is accessed through Blackboard. It is your responsibility to keep your portfolio up to date and to actively seek additional opportunities to develop and evidence your skills depending on your needs (e.g. through study skills workshops and extra-curricular activities).
Remember, if you don’t collect your coursework and have the feedback logged, it can’t be used as evidence for your Graduate Skills and you won’t gain the recognition for your skill development through your Higher Education Achievement Report.
