Introduction

D1 by Hada Mohamud Professional development Evaluate how personal learning and development may benefit others. Me In this assignment I will be evaluating how my personal learning and development as benefited others around me. I have the capability to assist others and use my knowledge and skills when doing this. Occasionally it can go very well and effective, however other sometime the wrong knowledge can be passed on to others. Therefore I will be evaluating the positive and negative effects my knowledge, skills and understand can have on others. There are many skills and experience I have developed through my course; furthermore I have developed the skill to put knowledge into practice. This has helped me to develop my personal learning in terms of using my skills in the health and social care sector.

Furthermore I have used subject related knowledge to assist my siblings with their subjects for example home work etc. this way they can develop various of knowledge which they can later use in their lives. Friends Friends have benefited from my knowledge and use of skills in many ways during the past few years. I inform my friends about thing such as diet, income and inequities etc. for example I study sociology in relation to health. Therefore we started talking about health and things which effect individual's diet. They came up with low income, I was informing them about what the theory Marists say about health and inequities. Marxists argue that people who are in the lower class have poor health because they earn lower wages. Therefore poor diet and environment is due to the income they receive. Social class has a big impact on individual's lives and the way they are brought up. People who are in the ruling class are known to have better health conditions. Marxist believes that capitalism is the main cause for inequalities and social class differences. ...read more.

Conclusion

Strengths include confidence, team work, ability to work on my own etc. Disadvantages On the other hand the knowledge that I have provided might be used incorrectly. If the knowledge and skills are not applied properly then this will result in problems. For example when giving advice to my mum about healthy eating, she may eat too much of one nutrient. For example proteins are good for your health however too much can damage your health. So when telling her information I also had to inform her about not to use too much and what can happen if too much protein is eaten. Other disadvantages can be the knowledge may not be relevant to every situation leading to misunderstand. When giving information you have to be also be careful, this is because you can't use your knowledge to influence others beliefs. Conclusion Overall I have evaluated how my personal learning and development has benefited other around me. The knowledge you again from education should be used to educate others around you. This will help them to increase their knowledge on things and also benefit them to have wide range of perspectives. ...read more.
