Assessment brief/s:
The summative assessment for this module is a 4,000-word essay as follows:
Students will critically reflect on their professional development from first to final
placement. Students will critically analyse 1 case example from each placement
to evaluate their development of professional knowledge, skills, and values from first to final
placement.
Students will need to consider within their analysis the role of critical reflection and address the
perspectives of service users, families and carers, and different professionals.
The focus of the assessment is your professional development rather than a critical reflection on
a case. Therefore, you are asked to identify 1 case example from your 70-day placement and 1
case example from your 100-day placement that enables you to critically reflect on how you
have developed professionally.
9
For example,
– you may have developed your ability to build rapport with a person;
– you may have developed your time management skills;
– you may have developed your ability when reflecting on cases to include external factors
that may impact on a person’s situation; or
– you may have had your values challenged.
As such, you are not required to have finished a case from referral to closure in order to
complete this assessment. It is about selecting critical incidents within your chosen cases that
demonstrate your professional development.
It is suggested that you do not commence this assignment until day 25 of your 100-day
placement, to ensure you have sufficient practice experience to draw on. If you commence your
placement later than timetabled, please see the student programme handbook for details of
how to seek an extension on your summative assessment.
What you must include within your critical reflection is an analysis of how critical reflection has
supported your professional development and consider how the perspectives of service users,
families, carers and other professionals have impacted on your professional development.
Within your critical reflection you should also analyse how your professional development has
been influenced by current and emerging issues related to social work practice and explore any
ethical dilemmas or tensions that arose during your placements. You should also provide a
legislative/policy context for your two cases and how your decision-making was influenced at an
individual, team, organisational, and societal level.
