1 = low skill, 10 = very confident
Professional skills | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 |
    1. Planning and designing activities for the children you work with. | | | | | | | | | | |
    2. Communicating with parents and families. | | | | | | | | | | |
    3. Working with a range of professionals from different backgrounds and with different views on supporting children. | | | | | | | | | | |
    4. Understanding how you impact on children’s development and learning through your practice. | | | | | | | | | | |
    5. Knowledge of child development theory. | | | | | | | | | | |
    6. Skills in assessing children’s learning. | | | | | | | | | | |
    7. Skills in supporting children’s well-being and emotional development. | | | | | | | | | | |
    8. Communicating with your colleagues. | | | | | | | | | | |

After looking at the above grid, I feel that I need to improve and work the most on working with a range of professionals from different backgrounds. I feel that I lack the skills and confidence at the moment to do this and hope that my future studies and experiences will help to improve this score. In my current role I have not had many opportunities to work alongside other professionals but I feel that it would benefit my practice if I had the chance to sit in on professional meetings and sessions. I will be encouraging the manager and SENCO to include me in their meetings especially when involving my key children. I will use the skills that I gain from this course to improve my knowledge...
