1. Self-Study

Workers can undertake self-study.

Some of the opportunities for self-study include:

Using the Self Study modules.
Using the Toolkits
Discussing case studies or other materials on the site with your supervisor.

The self study modules

There are nine modules on this site designed for self study. This self-study can be informal or it can be formally connected with the workplace.

Each module includes a self test. The self-test is a way of checking you have learnt the key concepts. You can complete the test and print out your answers. You can also print out suggested answers so that you can compare your answers with the suggested answers.

The completed self test can also be a way of showing your organisation evidence that you have worked on the module. You could take your completed on line test and the suggested answers to the on-line test to your supervisor and discuss them.

Some Modules also include pre-tests so you can check you knowledge before you start the Module.

The Toolkits

There are two Toolkits. They give you strategies and tools for working with clients.

Both Toolkits help you:

  • Identify issues and set priorities
  • Set goals
  • Develop strategies to achieve the goals
  • Monitor progress

They also include Worksheets and background information.

Discussing case studies with your supervisor

Another way of connecting the self study with the workplace would be to take one of the case studies in the modules and discuss it with your supervisor or present it at a team meeting.
