Introduction

Unit 6 - Personal & professional development in Health & Social care P1) Explain key influences on personal learning processes of individuals In this assignment I am going to be talking about key influences on my personal learning. I will start by explaining the positive and negative influences in my childhood experience. I will then explain my present experience and finish this assignment with my future expectations of learning process. During my childhood stages in primary school which was located in Birmingham I believe that I have experienced a lot to make me the person I am today. I have experienced a period time of being bullied and abused which had put my self-esteem and confidence down. I had to change my image just to fit in where I now believe was wrong. I have also made a few changes such as not socialising with the people I used to which destroyed me physically, emotionally and intellectually. My grades have also put me down in secondary school and my ability of understanding. I felt as though I did not get enough support from my teachers because they never made me feel motivated. Since I was a slow learner and did not achieve much I was put in a lower group with other students who had lower grades. I felt that I was not valued by my teachers and for this reason I did not have any inspiration to achieve anything. My family was very encouraging however it was not enough to achieve my goals and aims. As my grades and ability started to weaken it made me feel ineffective therefore I believe I had to make a change as I had aims and goals I wanted to reach. As my mum was seeing me distracted and I was not focused enough this made her set me in motivation and inspired me to work harder. ...read more.

This will help my ways into higher education. Last but not least the sections about Education & Work Experience of this document talk about my previous school and my current college, previous work placements i have worked and gained experience from. During education at secondary school the grades that had received were not very good, i then started college on an OCN Care Pathway course which boosted me up a little and helped me gain knowledge step by step. I had some great teachers which supported me in every step of the way. I passed this course and gained a level, since my work was above all great work and i had good grades i skipped level 2 Health and Social Care. I was transferred straight to level 3 of BTEC health and social care. I am proud of where i am today and what i have achieved. I did my first year and i am currently completing my second year which is quite tough. My experience during work placement was great but i wish i could improve one or two things. I did two work placements during my studies in both secondary school and college. I am very much looking forward to my next work placement. Professional Development I believe that my professional development eventually became better. I am very dedicated to work, I respect others and the job that I was doing and I communicate very well with individuals around me. I always try to improve my intelligence and knowledge through studies and training. I really enjoy what i am doing right now and hope to do more in life and help support individuals and add the highest value in the life of others.

Conclusion

Action plan: If this kind of situation arose again I will do more research, use books, ask teacher for help if needed instead of struggling and handing the assignment in late. D1) Evaluate how personal learning and development benefit others. I will evaluate how personal learning and development benefit others in order to answer this criterion. Personal Development is such a broad trade. It sorts from physical fitness to increasing your income to recuperating your frame of mind. Personal Development is the act of developing yourself and as you develop, so will your atmosphere. Personal learning and development also benefits others if you support your learning. Learning is a progression by which we gain knowledge, skills and an understanding of abstract concepts. You start learning from birth and the learning process continues through formal schooling and even right through to adulthood. I am going to look at a certain group to create an appropriate evaluation. The group I have chosen is peer group (in the classroom environment). I will begin by discussing the peer group and by doing so I will evaluate how personal learning and development can benefit this particular group. The ways that peer groups within the classroom environment evaluates on personal learning a development is by assignments, group presentations, feedback and give own opinion. This can also benefit others by them asking questions and comparing situations. My personal learning and development can also benefit others by sharing my own knowledge, sharing any new knowledge that I have gained and anything I have learned through my experience. Sharing my ideas with, work and learning from each other. I may also use Kolb's cycle in order to help others benefit from my knowledge and experience. D2) Evaluate own development over the duration of the programme In order to answer this criterion I am going to evaluate personal development over the duration of the programme, how well I have developed and why I have developed more in some areas and less in others. ...read more.
