The notion that effective professionals are those that can think systematically and critically about their own work, and use this to develop is now well established under the broad title “Reflective Practice”. There is an expectation of workers by most employers that they reflect upon their practice, and this often forms an important element of Continuous Professional Development (CPD).
Reflective accounts also form the backbone of SVQ Level 3. Your Reflective Journal will be a useful point of reference when undertaking this work. In order that you keep a record of attending the course and how you have or hope to put into place the skills and knowledge you gained, STRADA recommends that you complete a Reflective Journal.
