A Portfolio is a collection of tasks which assemble to demonstrate your working knowledge of HR in organisations and your research and employability skills as you prepare for your placement between Level 5 and Level 6. The portfolio aims to promote your ability to achieve a placement between level 5 and level 6 and a graduate role on graduation which will serve as a foundation for your future career.

The portfolio is divided along relevant tasks and you may begin these in any order.

The recommended route is to start to work towards you Westminster Employability Award: (begun at level 4) which runs throughout the task. If you achieve Bronze (50 points) in this award you will earn 20 marks towards your assessment.

Forage opportunities are many, but only those listed on the link are relevant to this module:

Have a look at them and choose ONE aligned to your own degree pathway. My pathway is business entrepreneurship.

You should have completed the task and shared it with the organisation to earn your certificate. The certificate features in the appendices of your Portfolio Report.

It earns you 10 marks if it has been completed successfully.

The link to Inside Forage(formerly Inside Sherpa) tasks in Semester Two  is here:

From (submission date)

  • Deloitte Technology Consulting
  • SSE: Live the Startup Hustle
  • Future Impact Investment Management
  • Citi Investment Banking
  • General Electric Human Resources Programme

These practical tasks will prepare you to research your own degree in the current labour market. You have support from the module, directing you to big data websites to research the buoyancy of your degree and to help you select a Placement opportunity. Each seminar group will only allow one of your chosen placement role; although you can apply for as many as you like.

You can find the recordings from the HR Leaders’ Interviews on the Blackboard (Bb) site under Assignment Resources. Comparing two of them for their approach to the Covid-19 situation apply the leadership models you have been taught on the module and mention a third.

For the final section you can use what you have already prepared within your WEA as your reflective statement since it will be informed by all you have learnt in the first two months of the module.

The Formative Assessment in week 6 is worth 5% when it has been annotated by your tutor and some of your peers. If you do not tune into the live session in Week 6 and participate in the peer review of the A4 plans you are not entitled to have this 5%
