Assessment 2: Learner Record
A learner record is the learner’s self-reported and self-reflective record in which he/she describes specific learning experiences, activities, responses, and skills acquired during the course, i.e. What I have learned.
We advise that you use the Learner Record Log in your course workbook to keep a record of what you have learned during the course and how you think this will impact you as a trainer in the future. This log can then be used to form the basis of a 1500-word essay under the headings in the table below.
Your essay should not be a summary of the course. Also, it is not about the tutor or your fellow learners.
The essay should be written in the first person and describe: –
What you have learned during the course and during your own research
