Introduction Short introduction to the report setting out what the aims and objectives of the reflective report are, what the report will cover and why. (not included in the word count)
Reflective Report You should use the reflection and literature from Assignment one to help you to produce an action plan for improvement and development of your personal brand.

Section 1:

Outline detailed reasons for the choice of specific areas for improvement

 Section 2:

 Produce a detailing Action plan detailing what you will do to create a more effective personal brand

(You must use a recognised action planning framework and method. The actions should be specific and relate to the literature above and to your work in the unit including feedback and reflection on your role in the activities conducted )

You must organise your work appropriately. Therefore:

Your work should not be descriptive or narrative (e.g. not just what you did) but reflective.

Actions must be specific rather than general

You should make sure that the actions are realistic (e.g. if you are naturally a quiet person it is unrealistic to state that you will become an extravert).

You may consider these actions in relation to the requirements of the type of role or career that you are intending to pursue. If this is not clear to you at the moment you should at least consider what would be appropriate for a ‘graduate level’ job or even an entrepreneur.
