Introduction
Congratulations, you have now commenced your work placement!
On your first day, before you start meeting with clients, it is important for you to be familiar with your environment, workplace procedures and current documentation in relation to your clients.
You will notice that in the first few activities you will be spending some time reviewing and preparing for your first meeting with clients – the end goal to be fully prepared to effectively work in the organisation and with clients.
Before commencing any work with a client, you need to ask for their permission and complete the ‘Consent form’ in Appendix A. Before recordings, you will need to ask participants’ permission for recording and complete the ‘Video Recording Consent Form’ in Appendix B with all participants’ name and signature (including yours), then upload to OpenSpace together with the videos and portfolio.
Handy tips for recording and uploading your video to OpenSpace:
? You can create your video using a mobile device or laptop. You can set up the device yourself or ask a friend or colleague to help with the video recording. Before you start recording your video, please look at the OpenSpace video function.
? Before starting your video, write down/think through a plan on what are you going to demonstrate or discuss with other participants. You may want to draft a short script for the participants and for yourself as a guidance on what are you/them going to say in the video.
? As part of your video recording you must include an introductory statement stating your name, student ID, qualification and assessment number.
? Speak clearly and in a professional manner. Make sure you and any other participants (if any) are clearly visible and well lit.
? Do not press ‘Submit’ until you have included all videos, consent forms and the completed portfolio. If you press submit, it will alert the assessor to mark your assessment. This means that, if you have not yet included all the required evidence, the assessor will have to mark the assessment as incomplete or ‘Not Yet Satisfactory’ due to missing evidence.
