1.1 Explain the purpose and benefits of continuously improving performance at work: The purpose and benefits of continuously improving performance at work is so you improve your personal skills. For example if I was to get into the routine of typing on a keyboard, I will slowly but surely end up improving my typing skills/speed I am able to type. If you are in the routine of something it begins to become very easy and it ends up part of your day to day life. As your boss begins to see you improving performance at work highly he will eventually end up offering you a higher job role at your work place.
1.2 Explain the purpose and benefits of encouraging and accepting feedback from others: This is so that you and your peers learn from the mistakes you make. As a team you all will be able to improve one another as you begin to realise the common mistakes you/others make on a day to day basis. It is very easy to carry on making the same mistakes, your body becomes so used to doing a certain thing that only if somebody else corrects you, you will end up getting it right. This is why feedback is so important in a work place.
1.3 Explain how learning and development can improve own work, benefit organisations and identify career options: For example: if you were an apprentice it would be because you wanted to learn how to do that certain job. Without another person with you, you wouldn’t understand how to complete the job properly. You always need an experienced member of the workplace to help you out, only when you are learning. Depending on who teaches you will depend on how good you become at that certain job; depending how well you have been taught will see how much you will benefit the organisation when you apply for a full job role in the near future.
1.4 Describe possible career progression routes: Level 1 in business administration would allow you to gain a job as an office junior, where as if you achieved a level 5 in business administration your job role could be an executive or a director.
1.5 Describe possible development opportunities: Possible development opportunities are basically progressing in your work place. You can do this by watching others whilst they work, volunteering to cover a member of staff that isn’t in. The best way to progress is by asking somebody else that is more experienced in your job role.
