During this period I had make good progress and learnt alot as weeks were going by. I had made a start with all my assignments and I felt I was doing well with my time management spreading my time effectively between doing the assignments and also revising for the cim exam. From weeks 1 -10 I felt alot more confident and felt I had the ability to aim for the highest grade. Overall I was happy with my progress and my work. My confidence contniues to as we have the support of out teachers, to ask questions if were not sure.
After settling in, we were given assignments and explained about how to do them and what was expected academically. In lessons we were given information and guidance on the related subjects. After settling in I was preparing myself to make a start with my assignments and to stay on top of my work. Till this point I had being making good progress and I intended to carry on.
In the first 3 weeks of me starting the course, I managed to settle in really well, adapting well to the university and networking with new class mates. From weeks one to three, I was told what to expect and what is expected from me. From all my subjects I was given a syllabus what we are going to be covering this term, this was a good idea it gave me time and a rough idea what i had to do. Overall I settled well and was making progress.
Professional and personal devolpment (PPD) is the last module we are covering this year. Writing his blog as I type is part of my assignment. This subject teaches you skills old and new and how to develop more confidently to achieve the highest grade and to produce the work to the best of ability. It is a good subject as helps you and pushes you to achieve the best in every subject. I have also learnt new problem solving IDAPER framework. I have also being taught report writing and how to reference which is required in all subjects and assignments.
Work related learning (WRL) is another module we are up-taking this term. WRL is an interesting module and uses different strategies that you make require when you start working. I have learnt the pest. swot and stakeholder analysis how to use them effectively. We have also had different external speakers from different businesses that talk to our class about their businesses and organisations. This has been helpful because we get an insight on different organisations and how they operate.
Cim stands for certificate in marketing which is an additional qualification you can take along with the degree I am doing. I have taken up the cim qualification and I have been revising following the cim study text guide. I am a bit nervous because I have an exam coming up soon so I have been balancing my assignments and my revision.

It is an very interesting subject and very challenging. marketing has a very open approach and a lot of techniques on how to make businesses successful through marketing. I am making good progress and applying it well to case studies which we do in class.

It has me identify my rights and also following the law in business. It is an interesting subject as i intend to open my own business in the future so i know the legislation. I am coping well if the assignment and making good progress.
In my learning process i have been given assignments to write and reflect what I have understood and what i have learnt. i have made good progress but sometimes i find it hard to write although in my mind i understand it. I also have to keep myself within the limit of the number count which can be hard so I have to make sure that I put the relevant points in my assignments.
Since undertaking the business management degree i have learnt new things and i am growing confident in taking up new tasks. i have learnt about the Gibbs reflective cycle which is a cycle used to write and evaluate a situation or a learning style. It covers all the aspects such as main body and to evaluating.
