3. Competently perform preliminary social work professional skills activities and tasks, including but not limited to:

? Interviews
? Case notes
This activity is designed to have you reflect on and improve your performance as a developing professional within social work. During your interviews you both observed and were observed by your partner, you both received and provided feedback. Giving and receiving feedback provides a solid foundation for improvement only if you then go on to analyse and use the feedback to plan for future action. With this in mind the following assessment item is designed to have you critically reflect on your performance, seek evidence based solutions to areas that require improvement and propose a future plan for your development.
Task Overview

1 Review the feedback provided by your observation partner about your performance in the social worker role, and think about your memory of your performance.
2 Determine which aspects of interviewing you were successful in and which you were not.
3 For those areas where you were not successful undertake research into practices which would enable your success in the future.
4 Write an Analysis of this experience.
5 Your analysis should include the following sections:
1 A critique of the particulars of the case in which you were the social worker.
2 An Outline the practices and skills that you used during your interview and an overview of the feedback provided by your observation partner about your performance.
3 You may like to divide this between those skills and practices with which you excelled and those which were less successful.
? Explain why you were able to execute these – for example was your ability in this area a result of your innate personality or did you prepare and have a strategy using a specific tool or method?
? Explain why you think that these particular aspects were less successful
