CLO S3: Convey information clearly and fluently, in high quality written form appropriate for their audience. CLO S5: Demonstrate the ability to work collaboratively. GROUP Working in groups of 4 – 6 Weighting 25% Length Development of a 7 - 9 page WIKI Site [pages MUST NOT exceed 800 words in length] Due date Week 10: Sunday 29 th January [access to your Wiki Site cuts off @ 11:59pm ] ASSESSMENT TASK 3: DESCRIPTION The group wiki assignment involves students investigating and reporting their findings with respect to the topic of Transferable Skills (TS). The assignment is designed to assist students identify and understand which are the critical TS that will assist them in their future employment. Alternative labels commonly used in the literature with respect to TS include personal transferable skills, employability skills, soft skills, generic skills and key competencies. The assignment involves the group completing both secondary and primary research investigating which Transferable Skills (TS) are most commonly sought by Business employers. It then involves each group reporting on their research findings and presenting information about the two most highly sought after Transferable Skills as evidenced by their research through the presentation of a Wiki site. Step 1 - Group members should review the readings provided as support for the assignment (located within LearnJCU [Assessment area]). Once students have a broad understanding of what Transferable Skills are [aka Employability Skills], the group should collectively decide which skill areas need to be analysed ahead of commencing Step 2 of the assignment. Step 2 - Each group member should then collect 10 job advertisements for two different job titles within the business sector. A list of job positions recommended for this analysis is provided via the Assessment area on the subject’s Learn JCU Site. As a second part to this process they should analyse the job advertisements and highlight / identify the essential criteria [in particular the Transferable Skills] being sought by employers. Step 3 - From the information gathered in Step 2 the group should construct a table/matrix that highlights which Transferable Skills are considered essential by employers across all the job positions analysed and how many [or alternatively what proportion of] advertisements specified each criterion. This will involve some synthesis of very similarly worded criteria into broader, more extensive criteria [TS skills based labels]. Step 4 – In presenting the job skills table you will need to identify the top 5 ranked transferable skills based categories. In addition to this the top two ranking skills based categories should be flagged as they will require specific pages to be presented within the site explaining their relevance, importance and key characteristics. Refer to Step 6.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
