You are to create a personal, reflective portfolio of written work and supporting evidence that demonstrates meaningful engagement with the process of finding and securing a graduatelevel placement role. You must use a recognised model of reflection to shape the reflective writing sections. It is acceptable to write in the first person. Detail: Introduction – briefly outline the Portfolio’s contents and structure and ‘set the scene’ for the reader. Section 1 - identify up to two placement goals and then fully justify your choice(s), analysing and synthesising the range of sources of information that have guided your decision-making. Then, reflect on your choice of placement goals, incorporating the following areas as a minimum: a) the type of role(s) you are seeking and why; b) your preferred sector/industry and why, and c) what part of the UK you wish to work in, and why.

Section 2 - with your identified skills / knowledge in mind, critically evaluate your own engagement in the range of personal and professional development activities available to you to help you reach your goal(s). Then, reflect on how the feedback / outcomes of these activities influenced your subsequentperformance in trying to achieve your placement goal(s).

Section 3 – critically reflect on, analyse and evaluate how your own decision-making processes and skills have changed over recent weeks in relation to seeking a placement role in the UK. In the Appendix, include evidence (screenshots) of your weekly reflective journal demonstrating how your decision-making processes and skills have altered.
