Unit 15: M1
M1 – Access methods of achieving development needs within the time frame of the career plan
For M1 I will be assessing methods that I will be achieving during the time period of my career plan. These methods will be based on my weaknesses and how I will be able to overcome them so my future plans can become more successful. I will also be comparing my career plan with my skills audit to see how they both perform in my future.
Gaps in my skills
For me to become a solicitor in the future I need to get into University with 300 ucas points. In order for me to get 300 ucas points I need to work very hard in college and try to achieve a distinction for this year to ...view middle of the document...
All you need to do is write down a bunch of skills and rate them from 1-5.
It is important to complete your skills audit because this will show universities and maybe even employers your skills and to see how useful you are. This will be beneficial for your future career plan. You can also talk about some weaknesses and talk about how you can overcome them.
Career development plan
My career development plan revolves around my five year plan; this is where I have combined my short term, medium term and long term goals together so it can guide me whenever I am confused or stuck.
Short term goals
For my short term goals year one I will be at Bradford college doing business level 3 B-Tec second year. With intentions I will be going to college everyday with 100% attendance. I will have to work very hard to achieve distinctions in this subject.
Medium term goals
For year 2 I will need to do another course so I can get enough points to enter the accounting course in university. The reason why I need to do another year at college is because I will need extra points for accounting. After that I will be doing my 3rd year which is starting accounting at university. After that either I will either be going to Leeds or Bradford University to enrol on the accounting course. For the fourth year I will be continuing with the course that I will be doing.
Long term goals
For my 5th year I will be graduating from university and will be finishing the course that I started. I will be achieving a degree on the specific course I thought that would help my future career. After that I will be looking for full time experience to do at an accountants private business or a well-established company. This will help me gain money and even more important experience. The reason why the experience is important is because you need it to become a accountant and need it to become better at the job you are doing.
The career development plan will help me progress through my life as I know what targets to acquire.
