1 Developing information literacy skills

This Key Skill Assessment Unit offers an opportunity for you to select and prepare work that demonstrates your key skills in the area of information literacy.

This unit provides you with advice and information on how to go about presenting your key skills work as a portfolio.

In presenting work that demonstrates your key skills you are taking the initiative to show that you can develop and improve a particular set of skills, and are able to use your skills more generally in your studies or at work. Skills development is all about taking responsibility for extending and improving your learning and performance in a wide range of contexts. We hope, therefore, that you will see this guide as a way of supporting your learning and skills development while you are studying, working and in your other activities. However you view it, we hope that they will help make skills development something you value personally.
