The End of Year review meeting
You need to prepare for your End of Year review meeting. It will be a competency based interview. The panel will ask for examples that demonstrate you have specific competencies. You will be able to use your ePortfolio in the interview. The key is to prepare for the interview. To do this you need to find out what the key competencies are for your chosen job. Then make sure that your E-me contains evidence that you have, or have an action plan that will ensure that you will develop, the required competencies. Your evidence/examples must stand up to detailed challenging questions, including about whether there was anything that you learned from the experience.
Work though some of the sample questions given at the end of this document and make sure that you have answers and/or evidence that you could use in the interview. It is important to think about the best format for your evidence. Written evidence is appropriate if you are trying to show that you can write a report or prepare an action plan; photographic evidence is appropriate to something you have designed or created; video evidence is appropriate if you are trying to demonstrate that you can deliver a formal presentation. Think about what you are trying to demonstrate and then think about the most appropriate format – then link it into your ePortfolio.
Information relating to typical competencies for jobs can be found in either the job description, person specification, KUDOS, Careerscape etc.
Link the following information into your ePortfolio
